US-based carrier Seaboard Marine has selected XVELA’s cloud-based platform to improve stowage efficiency and visibility into terminal operations.
XVELA’s Collaborative Stowage Solution will help Seaboard increase port stay operations as the company will be able to perform container vessel stowage planning activities. It will also enable the sharing of key collaborative information and viewing of real-time terminal operations data.
Seaboard Marine Cargo Planning and Operations manager Hector Velazco said: “Partnering with XVELA has allowed us to streamline our planning and execution processes to further improve our operational efficiency.
“Having greater visibility into vessel stability and lashing lets us cut down on the number of iterations of our stowage plan during the planning process. Visibility into real-time crane operations gives us the information we need to make decisions such as precisely when to call the pilot.”
By using XVELA platform, Seaboard can obtain actionable insights throughout the vessel call, including crane plans, terminal activity, and estimated completion times.
Seaboard can also optimise port side decisions by leveraging these insights.
XVELA Global Sales vice-president Martin Bardi said: “Seaboard Marine is demonstrating its commitment to delivering the highest level of service to its customers by leveraging XVELA to gather the data necessary to make the most informed decisions.
“Through XVELA’s integration with the TOS at an important terminal in Latin America and with the MACS3 on-board loading computer, Seaboard Marine is able to optimise stowage across each of its services to even further improve its schedule consistency and reliability.”
XVELA’s cloud-based collaboration platform and network can be used by ocean carriers and terminal operators.
