Stora Enso to implement Seaber system for schedule planning

Stora Enso has agreed a deal with Finnish maritime technology company Seaber to support the digitalisation of its bulk and breakbulk shipment planning, with the goal of optimising the company’s global cargo flows.

Stora Enso is a manufacturer of pulp, paper and other forest products, headquartered in Helsinki and operating mainly in Europe, Asia and South America.

Seaber’s AI-assisted web-based management and planning application is designed for both charterers and shipowners, to assist in schedule planning through stakeholder information sharing.

The firm’s tools integrate cargo and voyage requirements, costs and durations with data on vessel positions, suitability and availability to optimise schedules for cargo delivery and vessel utilisation. The software supports multi-port and multi-parcel voyages and any combination of time charter, contracts of affreightment, or spot contracts.

“After an extensive evaluation of available solutions on the market, we believe that Seaber provides the best tool for us to efficiently handle the planning of shipment schedules and communication with all stakeholders,” said Niklas Fahlen, SVP Logistics, Stora Enso.

“Together with Seaber’s offering for shipowners, we are able to jointly improve operational efficiency and reduce emissions by optimising port calls and doing our part in avoiding unnecessary repositioning of vessels.”
