Ocean Network Express (ONE) has planned to implement the world’s first cloud-based collaborative network for ocean carriers and terminal operators, Xvela, and upgrade its existing stowage planning tool.
To begin with, Xvela will be implemented on ONE’s Latin America services before expanding into Asia and throughout its global terminal network.
Navis’ StowMan stowage solution, which is fully integrated with Xvela, will replace ONE’s existing stowage planning tool.
Takashi Kase, SVP global vessel operations at ONE, said: “The transparency and collaborative stowage capabilities of Xvela and Navis integrated solutions will provide us a better decision-making process and more efficient operations across out network.
“We have been sourcing for a technology that supports our goal in driving process innovation. We are starting with stowage collaboration, but we see a strong future with Xvela to bring about a positive win-win partnership between ONE and our called terminals.”
Utilising the StowMan vessel stowage planning software to optimise its cargo capacity, ONE’s 19,190 teu vessel MOL TRIBUTE was able to establish a loading record based on accurate vessel profile information.
This resulted in higher utilisations, fewer restows and better user engagements.
