CargoMate to pilot port technology with Konecranes

Maritime technology start-up CargoMate has announced a partnership with Finnish port systems provider Konecranes to pilot CargoMate’s newly developed port call optimisation technology, after being selected as part of Konecranes’ REACH start-up engagement programme.

The collaboration, which will begin in Q1 2019, will focus on using digital technologies to minimise delays and idle time for container ships in port. CargoMate’s platform is used to forecast cargo completion time to help container ship operators anticipate delays, reduce turnaround time in port, and minimise fuel consumption.

The REACH programme scouted more than 2,000 start-ups to find new technologies that could benefit Konecranes’ customers in ports and terminals. CargoMate was one of two start-ups selected for further collaboration after a selection day held at Konecranes’ headquarters in Hyvinkää, Finland.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Konecranes on a port call optimisation pilot programme. It is incredibly exciting for us as a start-up to find a partner who shares our vision for digitally enabled ships and ports and our passion for creating a safer, more efficient and environmentally sustainable maritime sector,” said Nick Chubb, Head of Growth at CargoMate Technologies.
