XVELA, the world’s first collaborative maritime business network, and Navis, the leading provider of operational software and services for the shipping supply chain, will showcase their connected suite of maritime solutions at the Global Liner Shipping Conference and Exhibition on May 15 and 16, 2018.
The integrated product helps deliver critical operational visibility to stakeholders across the container chain to help improve efficiency, performance and service delivery — utilizing a range of technology including XVELA’s cloud-based terminal-carrier collaboration platform, Navis’ industry-leading MACS3 onboard loading computer, StowMan on-premise stowage planning solution and Bluetracker vessel performance suite.

President of XVELA, Guy Rey-Herme said: “Planning processes across the container flow currently take place in silos, with little standardization or real-time information exchange and no chance for collaboration.
“As a result, all stakeholders – terminal operators, ocean carriers, ship owners and managers and so on – are lacking the critical visibility and connectivity required to reach the next level of efficiency and productivity.
“By providing an integrated suite of solutions on a shared maritime business network, XVELA and Navis are connecting the key players and processes across the ocean supply chain and delivering value to the industry that no stakeholder could achieve alone.”
Attendees visiting XVELA and Navis in the exhibition hall will see how their technology solutions can ensure availability of critical planning, how early visibility and collaborative planning can be achieved and how it can help ocean carriers and terminal operators to increase efficiency, and how machine learning can enable semi-automated stowage to simplify and speed up vessel stowage planning.
