Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced plans to implement the XVELA Cloud-based collaborative network to connect its carrier fleet and terminal operations, alongside an upgrade of its vessel stowage planning systems with the XVELA-integrated StowMan system from Navis.
ONE and XVELA, an affiliate of Navis, plan to implement the terminal rollout on ONE’s Latin America services before moving into Asia and then out across its global terminal network. The initial rollout will leverage XVELA’s services to enhance communication and collaboration between ONE’s planners and its terminal partners.
“The transparency and collaborative stowage capabilities of the XVELA and Navis integrated solutions will provide us a better decision-making process and more efficient operations across our network,” said Takashi Kase, SVP Global Vessel Operations at ONE.
“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.”
ONE recently announced that it established a loading record of 19,190 TEU aboard MOL TRIBUTE, utilising the StowMan software to optimise the ship’s cargo capacity.
