CargoSmart, a provider of global management software solutions for the maritime industry, has adopted internet of things (IoT) technology provided by smart technology event broker Solace.
According to a statement, CargoSmart has started using the PubSub+ to establish reliable IoT connections between vessels, control centers and applications in diverse cloud and on-premises environments.
The platform allows shippers to create a realistic real-time model of their entire operation through the creation of a digital twin – a virtual representation of physical assets and sensors.
These digital twins let shippers use sophisticated simulation techniques to develop responses that effectively address scenarios that might otherwise affect their customers.
By leveraging IoT, CargoSmart has been able to attract some of the world’s biggest ocean liners, such as COSCO-owned Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL).
Lionel Louie, Chief Commercial Officer, CargoSmart, commented: “Solace PubSub+ intelligently routes customized, filtered streams of IoT data from tens of thousands of vessels, sensors and control systems to applications, analytics engines and users that can use them to make smarter decisions that optimize operations.”
Belinda So, General Managger, OOCL, stated: “It’s clear that Solace PubSub+ has given CargoSmart a world-class foundation upon which they can deploy a game-changing solution that leverages the Internet of Things to help smart shippers differentiate themselves in the marketplace.”
