Cargo handling industry looks for real-time visibility and connectivity to improve efficiency and productivity


The cargo handling industry increasingly explores cloud-based, collaborative data sharing platforms to provide real-time visibility and connectivity required to improve efficiency and productivity. This is evident from a study conducted by Navis and XVELA, both part of Cargotec’s business area Kalmar, and major players within terminal operating systems (TOS) and digital collaboration platforms respectively.

The study, entitled “Working as One,” is based on a survey of 250 shipping industry executives and professionals from terminals, ocean carriers, shippers, logistics providers, and other members of the global container supply chain. The report examines how different players can improve their operational processes with coordination and synchronisation, and by working together with a common set of shared data.
