ONE Alliance Picks XVELA Stowage Solution
ONE Alliance has opted to use a collaborative, cloud-based stowage solution by XVELA in order to work with operational partners and boost service quality for customers.
ONE Alliance is a containership joint venture between Japan's three largest container shipping lines, Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL), and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).
It has recently plans to use XVELA’s Collaborative Stowage solution for stowage planning.
With the agreement, ONE Alliance is set to take a more collaborative approach in working with operational and technology partners, allowing it to provide a higher level of service, meeting more stringent customer expectations.
With the ONE service scheduled to begin April 1, 2018, ONE stowage planners will migrate to the full XVELA cloud-based solution.
Terminals and other operational partners across the ONE network will start using XVELA to collaborate with eachother.
XVELA is a cloud-based collaboration platform that drives transparency, efficiency and profitability to a network of ocean carriers and terminal operators.
The platform lets terminals, carriers and operational partners communicate, coordinate and synchronize their operations, starting with stowage planning and expanding to berth management and port call optimization.
Both terminals and carriers may use the solution to create new efficiencies, improve customer service and reliability, and capture substantial savings across the ocean supply chain, XVELA said.
Read a paper from Dr Oscar Pernia on how cloud based networks may be used to connect terminals with far more shipping partners.
ONE Alliance said: “Ocean Network Express endeavors to achieve new levels of efficiency and deliver a new standard of service to our customers.
“We believe that XVELA’s innovative collaborative solution will enable us to work more effectively with our operational partners around the world in order to attain these goals.
“ONE is determined to unify and enhance the customer experience through the adoption of new technologies.
Guy Rey-Herme, President of XVELA, said: “We are pleased that ONE sees the value of enhanced visibility and collaboration that next-generation cloud solutions can offer, and has accordingly chosen to consolidate their stowage planning activities with XVELA.”
