Navis In the News

Logistics firms in the ocean supply chain need to apply digitized data sharing to avoid costly inefficiencies due to poor collaboration in five key areas, a maritime industry study shows. The lack of data sharing affects importers, exporters, container carriers, terminal operators, vessel owners, and other stakeholders, all of which suffer from poor visibility and predictability around shipments, according to the study.

The study, entitled “Competitive Gain in the Ocean Supply Chain: Innovation That’s Driving Maritime Operational Transformation,” is based on a global survey of more than 200 executives and professionals from terminal operators, carriers, logistics providers, vessel owners, port authorities, shippers, consignees and other members of the global ocean supply chain. The study was developed in partnership with maritime industry technology leaders, Navis and XVELA.

Shipping at the Tipping Point

Unsurprisingly, the study supports the view that parties right across the supply chain suffer from poor visibility and predictability around shipments, and are losing money due to “a lack of partner synchronization and insufficient data insight”. Included in the study findings are that 90% of survey participants said real-time data access and information sharing was important to increasing the efficiency and performance of the shipping industry, with 82% agreeing the industry needs to improve supply chain visibility.

Driving visibility across the supply chain

Driving visibility across the supply chain is a key focus in the development of new technology. It is certainly central to Navis’ recently-launched XVELA solution, a cloud-based collaboration platform for terminal operators and ocean carriers and all those involved in the supply chain, which enables real-time communication for all stakeholders.
