ONE chooses TPS Valparaiso to launch Xvela collaborative platform in Latin America

Ocean Network Express (ONE) and TPS Valparaiso have successfully implemented Xvela to help improve visibility and efficient data exchanges between stakeholders.

TPS Valparaiso, one of the most important facilities in Chile, was chosen by ONE to be the launch point for its global collaborative initiative.

The terminal will be able to streamline communication between ONE’s planners and terminal operators, collaborating in real-time thanks to the implementation.

Paulo Biazotti, LAWC vice president at ONE, said: “Our focus is to offer a superior service to our customers, and Xvela provides us with functions that allow better integration between the shipping company and the terminal, which means better planning for our ships.

“We chose TPS for this project because of its proactivity offering innovation in a market as a traditional as shipping, and because we share a similar approach to customer solutions.”

Xvela’s shared platform will provide visibility on the arrival and stability of ships coming into the terminal and will help maximise the efficiency of TPS vessel calls.

TPS general manager Oliver Weinrich said in a statement that TPS is “very honoured that ONE has chosen to work with us on this project, in a totally pioneering way in Chile, which at the time reaffirms our fluid and instantaneous way, in key aspects for operational coordination.”

Xvela is the world’s first maritime business network for ocean carriers and terminal operators.

Sumitha Sampath, VP of operations at Xvela, said: “We believe shared data and communication will improve operations and efficiencies at terminals across the globe.

“This partnership with ONE and TPS Valparaiso will help facilitate cloud-based communication in real-time and provide a platform to drive transparency and collaborating among partners.”
