DM Sea Logistics, a Singapore-based provider of shipping logistics, boat launch and chartering services, has agreed a deal to impellent the MarineM digital platform Innovez One.
This new collaboration will support DM Sea Logistics in optimising the operations of its 12-vessel fleet, with the goal of maximising the efficiency of its crew and passenger transportation, cargo deliveries and supply services.
The software will be used to replace manual processes such as vessel allocation, job tracking and job planning with digital alternatives, improving DM Sea Logistics’s management and operational capabilities with faster turnaround times and increasing resource availability.
Innovez One’s MarineM system uses GPS and AIS data to track the position of each vessel and the status of jobs in real time, applying artificial intelligence to automate scheduling and allocate resources as efficiently as possible while adjusting to any last-minute requests or changes.
The new system will be used by DM Sea Logistics and the shipping agents it serves to support their participation, on a trial basis, in the West Coast Contactless Pier Services pilot project initiated by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), which aims to minimise contacts and provide a safer passage for sea crews entering and leaving the pier in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Using Innovez One’s mobile Shipping Agent App, shipping agents will be able to create electronic orders for launch boat services and digitally coordinate the movement of sea crews between shore and sea.
MarineM will also streamline and automate the billing process, replacing paper with electronic invoices and receipts to facilitate accounting processes. Moreover, the system will issue e-tickets for passengers, who will be able to access boarding information from their smartphones, check in and be informed of any last-minute changes.
“Investing in automation and digitalisation is an important strategic step for us. We are proud to collaborate with Innovez One in innovative digital transformation as part of our effort to contribute to Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative,” said Eugene Tho, Director at DM Sea Logistics.
“This technology will add value for our customers, reducing coordination and time between our operations and our clients at the pier, reducing waiting time with auto-scheduling, reducing carbon footprint while increasing our uptime and flexibility.”
