Hapag-Lloyd will use software from Intelligent Cargo Systems to enable crew to monitor operations more efficiently and safely, while capturing new data to further improve vessel performance.
In a statement, Intelligent Cargo Systems said its CargoMate platform provides carriers with real-time port call visibility and automated notifications of important port events.
Among these is estimated time of completion, which allows fleet managers to “dynamically manage coastal schedules”, according to the company.

“It is a great milestone for us to announce our partnership with Hapag-Lloyd.” said Chris Jones, CEO of Intelligent Cargo Systems, “We’ve worked closely with them in recent years, and we’re excited to continue developing new opportunities to improve their services.”
“By having a real-time view of every port call on the CargoMate platform, we’re able to observe port calls in greater detail without requesting progress updates from the terminal or local agent,” adds Jörn Springer, Senior Director, Network Operations at Hapag-Lloyd.
“It has uncovered new cost-savings, and will continue our drive to improve performance and visibility for our customers.”
