Evergreen Marine Corp (Taiwan) Ltd. has signed a multi-year subscription agreement for Navis’ StowMan Control Center and Distributed Services and Vessel Pool.
This agreement aims to optimise the ocean line’s stowage operations by leveraging the advantages of using a full suite of Navis Carrier and Vessel Solution products.
According to a statement from Navis, Evergreen will now find high value in having the most advanced lashing calculations in the market available inside its stowage planning tool. This tool provides highly efficient cargo capacity management alongside the safest possible sailing for the vessel in all situations.
“With the ever-increasing complexity in the seaborne trade and accelerated needs for larger volumes of cargo on ships, it is of utmost importance for us to find a balance between capacity maximisation and safe vessel operations in daily and extraordinary situations,” said Captain Y.S. Hwang, Deputy Senior VP of the Operation Department at Evergreen Marine Corp (Taiwan) Ltd.
“With the Navis Stowage Planning solution we are able to save time and costs by providing a fully integrated tool for more efficient and flexible operations to our central planner teams and their global collaboration.”
The StowMan Control Center and Distributed Services provides a scalable framework to transform the standalone tool into a connect client-server setup while maintaining full offline planning capabilities.
On top of this, Vessel Pool allows planners to always work with up-to-date ship profiles.
Ajay Bharadwaj, Senior Director of Product Management at Navis, added: “The challenging situations that we have seen at sea in the past few months require a new approach to marine cargo transportation in order to address the variety of demands that ocean carriers are facing.
“The Navis stowage solution has been set up to help liners focus on dynamic, efficient and profitable operations while providing the safest sailing possible for their vessels.”
In November 2021, Navis also released findings from its 2021 Sustainability Survey. In this, it found that 93 per cent of respondents believe it’s either important or extremely important for their organisations to have sustainability initiatives in place.
The survey gathered responses from over 71 Navis customers and highlights the interest that terminals have in moving towards more sustainable operations.
