Navis, part of Cargotec's business area Kalmar, will hold an industry event to come up with a software strategy that allows shipping partners to streamline their ocean supply chains and improve collaboration.
Cargotec is inviting investors and analysts to Software Day in Helsinki, Finland, on June 1, 2017, to come up with a strategy that will deliver a more comprehensive set of solutions for optimizing terminal and carrier performance, as well as cloud-based collaboration.
The company aims to drive greater transparency, efficiency and profitability to a network of ocean carriers, terminal operators and logistics providers to deliver goods more efficiently.
Benoit de la Tour, president of Navis and head of software business, Kalmar, said: “As the ocean supply chain has grown more complex and new challenges have arisen for all members of the shipping community, Navis is committed to growing its software and services portfolio to support current and future customer needs.”
Andy Barrons, SVP and Chief Strategy Officer at Navis, added: “With our expanded focus, existing and new Navis customers will not only benefit from access to some of the best solutions custom built for the ocean supply chain, but also deeper knowledge and industry experience, greater innovation capabilities and unmatched talent to help deliver value at every turn.”
