ONE alliance signs on for XVELA
The new Japanese carrier will use the Cloud-based XVELA platform for collaborative stowage planning.
The Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE) has selected the XVELA Collaborative Stowage Solution for its vessel planning software.
The decision said XVELA, "underscores the commitment of ONE to collaborate with operational and technology partners to provide innovative services and exceed customer expectations".
One is the newly created shipping line formed from the merger of K Line, NYK Line and MOL. It is understood MOL and NYK are using Navis PowerStow, one of the legacy products that is now part of XVELA, whereas K Line uses another stowage planning application.
There is a lot of conjecture about how ONE will successfully merge the three carriers, but for XVELA its decision over stowage planning is a step in the direction towards collaboration to achieve greater efficiency that the company is trying to drive the wider industry towards.
“Ocean Network Express endeavours to achieve new levels of efficiency and deliver a new standard of service to our customers,” said a ONE executive. “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. 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,” said Guy Rey-Herme, President of XVELA.
ONE is scheduled to begin operating on April 1, 2018. “ONE stowage planners will migrate to the full XVELA cloud-based solution, enabling collaboration and improving communication, transparency and operational efficiency both within the organization and with terminals and other operational partners across the ONE network on a single, shared industry collaboration platform” XVELA concluded..
