Klaveness reports massive shift to digital in bulk cargo shipping

Klaveness Digital, the technology arm of Norwegian shipping company Torvald Klaveness, has reported that bulk volumes shipped via its CargoValue platform now represent a 700% increase on physical cargo shipped by the group in the past 12 months.

“The industry’s progressing digitalisation agenda was no doubt expedited during the pandemic, more and more companies have realised the necessity of digital transformation to survivability and profitability, it’s now either get started or get left behind,” said Aleksander Stensby, Managing Director at Klaveness Digital.

The company’s CargoValue software provides industrial companies with a digital twin of their seaborne supply chain, and currently caters to a large portion of the aluminium industry outside of China.

Growth in system users in the mining and cement industries have also contributed to the increased digital cargo flows at the company relative to purely physical cargo handling.

“For the Klaveness Group the milestone represents our strategic development,” said Michael Jørgensen, Head of Dry Bulk at Klaveness.

“We see the scope for digital handling of freight and supply chain increasing by the minute and remain adamant that our independent business units solve the various aspects of the industry problems through a range of tools.”
