Stellium and Voyager Portal have announced a partnership to deliver an integrated platform to make Stellium’s SAP Transportation Management (TM) technology available for bulk shipping operations.
“Bulk commodity shipping is a highly complex and fragmented mode of marine transport,” said ,” says Matthew Costello, CEO of Voyager Portal.
“Over 90% of ships crossing the ocean will transport bulk commodities such as crude oil, gas, petrochemicals, agricultural products, heavy equipment, and minerals. Given the complexity and variability of each shipment, the operations teams often work exclusively with email and XLS for tracking, planning and execution activities.”
Voyager Portal offers software to assist bulk shipping teams in digitally managing their operations with their external parties in a shared collaborative environment. Its low-code workflow technology allows users to design and execute their own processes, then surface the data for Exceptions Based Management and reporting.
The platform covers operational workflows such as vessel nominations, survey appointments, terminal clearances, ETA tracking, demurrage and cargo claims.
“Our team has extensive first-hand experience implementing SAP TM for our customers. Through our many business consulting and system integration engagements we have become acutely aware of both the importance of bulk shipping to our customers, and also the inherent risks that exist with this unique mode. With Voyager and SAP TM, our customers’ planning, production and sales teams can have a true end-to-end picture of their transportation operations in one place,” said Randeep Nambiar, CEO of Stellium.
