Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced plans to develop and integrate a smart container system across its global fleet, in collaboration with Sony Network Communications Europe.
“From its very inception, ONE is a business that believes in the value of collaboration. Now, together with Sony, we are excited to create the future of container shipping. This is a future where we have access to the insights we need to offer our customers a higher quality of service to forge a new standard of process excellence,” said Hiroki Tsujii, Managing Director, Product & Network, Ocean Network Express.
“The development of this smart container solution will combine the very best from experts in our respective fields. Our joint mission will aim to push the limits of what we are capable of with innovative logistics technologies.”
The connected containers will provide ONE with improved insight into the operation of its container fleet, offering greater visibility for proactive decision making. The shipping line’s customers will also be able to access live updates throughout a shipment’s journey, facilitating better communication with relevant stakeholders.
“We are honoured to collaborate with ONE and dedicated to creating an advanced solution for smart containers,” said Erik Lund, Head of the Tracking Division, Visilion, Sony Network Communications Europe.
“The real-time insights gained across ONE’s fleet will allow them to further optimise their shipping business and in doing so, improve customer service. We look forward to working together and creating the future of logistics.”
