The global Phase I rollout is planned to be initiated on one of the Latin American services of Hapag Lloyd and will continue to broaden throughout the company’s terminal partners.
As part of the rollout, the company will leverage XVELA’s services to improve communication and collaboration between its planners and terminal partners.
Hapag-Lloyd Fleet Support senior director Joern Springer said: “Working together with XVELA will create an increased advantage for Hapag-Lloyd and its partners.
“Through increased visibility throughout the transport chain, all involved parties will be able to optimise asset and resource planning, resulting in greater accuracy and a considerable improvement of collaboration levels.”
By offering benefits to the company and its terminal partner network, XVELA will allow both sides to leverage real-time data-sharing advantages.
XVELA Global Sales vice-president Martin Bardi said: “Hapag-Lloyd, recognised as an innovative industry leader committed to delivering superior customer services, will collaborate with its terminal network in XVELA to share critical information in real time.
“Optimisation of stowage across each of their services will further improve operational efficiency and consistency. The network effect of onboarding another large global carrier will serve as a catalyst for other carriers and terminals to follow.”
Last month, Seaboard Marine selected XVELA’s cloud-based platform to improve stowage efficiency and visibility into terminal operations.
MAN Energy Solutions secured a contract from Hapag-Lloyd earlier this month for the conversion of a 15,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) container vessel to dual-fuel operation.
