XVELA, creator of a cloud-based vessel stowage and collaboration platform for ocean carriers and terminal operators; and Hapag-Lloyd, one of the world’s largest liner shipping companies, have entered into a pilot program to carry out the first real-world trials of the XVELA platform.
Hapag-Lloyd is the first ocean carrier to sign on for the pilot program of XVELA’s solution, underscoring the company’s long-standing commitment to innovation.
The XVELA platform allows carriers and terminals to work together to improve visibility and increase efficiency throughout the vessel stowage planning and execution process. This pilot program provides Hapag-Lloyd the opportunity to gain first-hand experience with XVELA’s cloud-based collaboration and real-time information-sharing solution.
“Hapag-Lloyd is one of the most innovative carriers in the industry, so it is no surprise that they are the first to step up to take part in our global pilot program, and we are pleased to have them on board,” said Christopher Mazza, vice-president and chief customer officer, XVELA. “As an ocean carrier, Hapag-Lloyd understands that collaboration with terminals is essential to improving their operational efficiency and effectively managing their stowage planning and execution, and we are looking forward to demonstrating the value of the XVELA platform to that end in this pilot program.”
The scope of XVELA’s pilot program is enhanced visibility of stowage planning-related information and better connectivity between ocean carriers and terminal operators, with the tangible goals of increased operating efficiency and improved vessel turnaround times.
XVELA’S global pilot program will also enable participating ocean carriers and terminal operators to collaborate with the firm to provide feedback on the platform and weigh in on new functionality and features as they are developed.
