Global port group PSA International (PSA) has announced a strategic partnership with autonomous supply chain management company One Network Enterprises (ONE), to introduce new capabilities for track-and-trace visibility on cargo bookings.
ONE Network’s NEO platform provides digital tools to help automate aspects of supply chain management, from inbound supply to outbound order fulfilment and logistics, with machine learning and intelligent agent technology to enable optimisation of the supply network.
PSA’s Cargo Solutions business unit will work with ONE to jointly create a system that will improve its ability to connect with other supply chain stakeholders and analyse data, expanding the functionality of its existing CALISTA digital platform.

“Our vision is to connect the supply chain communities and empower them with the ability to move their goods with greater intelligence, agility and resilience. By augmenting PSA’s current physical and digital capabilities with ONE’s leading network technology, we believe we can amplify the functionalities of our CALISTA platform to the benefit of our supply chain stakeholders.”
The new jointly developed system, is expected to feature shipment planning, order management, and execution functionality, including PO planning, management, and optimisation, as well as carrier management for ocean, road and rail bookings, and full order confirmation, updates and reporting.
