Some Resistance to Ocean Cargo Technology Continues to Persist

This is worsened by the industry’s aging and inflexible IT systems, which are key impediments to improving visibility and collaboration. Some 54 percent of respondents said the industry being “slow to change” was one the biggest roadblocks to improving collaboration, while 49 percent cited the cost and complexity of legacy systems.

Synchronizing the ocean supply chain for terminals and carriers was put in spotlight at Navis World 2017 staged in San Francisco earlier this year. Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, told logistics managers charged with keeping abreast of the latest changes in automation. But in a subsequent report released this week, analysts say that some sectors of the industry continue to resist.

The maritime industry and broader ocean supply chain are suffering from major and costly inefficiencies due to ineffective data sharing and poor cross-industry collaboration, according to a new report and industry survey released by the Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network in coordination with Navis and XVELA, both part of Cargotec’s Kalmar business area.

Lack of Ocean Supply Chain Technology Creating Inefficiencies

A new BPI survey has found that a lack of cross-industry collaboration in the ocean supply chain technology is creating "costly" inefficiencies. The global report, ‘Competitive Gain in the Ocean Supply Chain: Innovation That's Driving Maritime Operational Transformation’, carried out in coordination with Navis and XVELA — both part of Cargotec's Kalmar business area, has revealed that the industry needs to improve supply chain visibility after more than 80% of 200-plus professionals documented concerns about their sectors.

Infographic: Problems with the Ocean Supply Chain

According to 200-plus industry executives from terminal operators, carriers, logistics providers, vessel owners, port authorities, shippers, consignees and other members of the global ocean supply chain, the push for industry improvements are likely come from a combination of forces. It was found that shippers want better operational visibility, alliances will demand better ways for their carrier members to share information to improve efficiencies and customer service and terminals and port authorities are under pressure to increase utilisation and optimise existing infrastructures.
