Singapore container shipping company Ocean Network Express (ONE) is set to deploy two solutions to boost its operational efficiency.

Initially, ONE will deploy XVELA, a Cloud-based collaborative network for ocean carriers and terminal operators. It is designed to gain real-time insights and control through a platform of connected systems.

Subsequently, the shipping line will upgrade its existing stowage planning tool with the advanced StowMan stowage solution from Navis. The Navis planning solution is completely integrated with XVELA.

Ocean Network Express Global Vessel Operations senior vice-president Takashi Kase said: “The transparency and collaborative stowage capabilities of the XVELA and Navis integrated solutions will provide us a better decision-making process and more efficient operations across our network.

“We have been sourcing for a technology that supports our goal in driving process innovation. We are starting with Stowage Collaboration, but we see a strong future with XVELA to bring about a positive win-win partnership between ONE and our called terminals.”

At the outset, Navis and its affiliate XVELA will deploy the terminal rollout on ONE’s Latin America services and will continue to expand into Asia and across its terminal network worldwide.

ONE said that the preliminary launch will use XVELA’s services to further improve communication and collaboration between ONE’s planners and its terminal partners.

In December, PSA Singapore and ONE partnered to establish a container terminal joint venture at Pasir Panjang Terminal in Singapore.

ONE manages a fleet of more than 210 vessels and provides an international network of more than 120 services.
