Hapag-Lloyd to link entire fleet to port call visibility platform

Hapag-Lloyd has signed a new agreement with Intelligent Cargo Systems, extending the companies’ existing relationship to outfit the carrier’s complete managed fleet with the CargoMate platform for real-time port call visibility.

The software will enable Hapag-Lloyd’s crews and shore-based teams to monitor cargo operations and capture data to further improve route optimisation and vessel performance.

“This new agreement with Intelligent Cargo Systems underlines our commitment to optimise every port call for the benefit of our customers,” said Rajiv Ghose, Senior Director of Network Operations at Hapag-Lloyd.

“The CargoMate platform gives our operations teams digitalised insight that is challenging to collect by traditional means. We are looking forward to further optimising our port stays using the data generated by CargoMate and will continue to work closely with Intelligent Cargo Systems to develop more innovative solutions within the port call optimisation space.”

The extended agreement will also allow Hapag-Lloyd to add additional vessels under the same contract terms as it expands its fleet in the future, keeping all of the vessels on a standardised set-up.

“By bringing unprecedented port call data to more vessels, crews and shore-based decision-makers, we’re able to create opportunities for reducing fuel expenditure and emissions across the Hapag-Lloyd fleet,” said Chris Jones, CEO of Intelligent Cargo Systems.

“As a committed development partner since 2017, Hapag-Lloyd’s operational experience has been invaluable in the continuous improvement of the CargoMate platform for the benefit of all users.”
