Major shipping line Ocean Network Express (ONE) has broken the record for the amount of TEU stored on a single container vessel, which it achieved with the support of Navis’ StowMan solution.

Utilizing the Cargotec company’s stowage planning software, ONE was able to load over 19,100 TEU onto the MOL Tribute at the Port of Singapore, surpassing the record of 19,038 containers previously set by Maersk in August 2018.

Partnering with Navis to achieve this milestone, ONE leveraged the StowMan solution in conjunction with the 20,146 TEU vessel’s MACS3 loading computer.

The benefit of combining the two technologies, according to a statement, is “twofold”, as StowMan shows the same results in terms of stability and strength as MACS3, facilitating more efficient planning.

In addition to this, Navis’ support enabled ONE to optimize the cargo load based on accurate vessel profile information, resulting in higher utilization, fewer re-stows and better user engagement.

Navis has also underlined its plans to expand these results to other terminals, advancing collaboration with stowage planners to fully align all parties during the processes of loading and unloading.

 

 

Kunihiko Nishimura, General Manager of Global Vessel Operations at ONE, said: “With the help of Navis and PSA Singapore, we were able to accomplish a tremendous feat – not only planning, but successfully executing a vessel call with more than 19,100 containers on board.

“It is truly remarkable and we will continue to innovate and leverage the best possible technology to further advance our performance to better serve our customers.”

This achievement follows two prior record-stows, completed aboard the MOL Trust and MOL Tradition in December 2018.

Bruce Jacquemard, Chief Customer Officer at Navis, added: “Many aspects of terminal operations have already seen improvement through optimization technology, but greater collaboration in stowage planning for better productivity is an often overlooked means for efficiency gains and cost savings.

“An efficient stowage plan is one of the most important factors in saving the transportation cost of shipping companies and getting vessels to their next port of call in a timely manner.

“The record-breaking load by ONE is a great demonstration of what can be achieved when the right pieces are in the right place at the right time.”
