Ocean Network Express (ONE) and TPS Valparaiso have implemented XVELA to share information on vessel calls.
XVELA has announced a step forward with ONE. Back in 2017, XVELA announced ONE would use its Cloud-based platform for collaborative stowage planning. ONE has now selected TPS Valparaiso as the launch point for its global collaboration campaign.
ONE’s goal with XVELA is to “streamline communication between ONE’s planners and terminal operators and collaborate in real-time,” XVELA stated.
“Our focus is to offer a superior service to our customers, and XVELA provides us with functions that allow better integration between the shipping company and the terminal, which means better planning of our ships,” said Paulo Biazotti, Vice President LAWC, ONE. “We chose TPS for this project because of its proactivity offering innovation in a market as traditional as shipping, and because we share a similar approach to customer solutions.” TPS is also a Navis customer, it has been using the Navis N4 TOS since 2016.
In a statement, TPS General Manager Oliver Weinrich said that TPS is “...very honoured that ONE has chosen to work with us on this project, in a totally pioneering way in Chile, which at the same time reaffirms our fluid and instantaneous way, in key aspects for operational coordination.”
ONE and TPS will use XVELA’s to provide shared visibility into arrival times and stability calculations. “Improving the communication that underpins this historically painstaking process will go a long way towards helping both carriers and terminals maximize returns and optimize operations,” XVELA noted.
“We believe shared data and communication will improve operations and efficiencies at terminals across the globe,” said Sumitha Sampath, VP of Operations at XVELA. “This partnership with ONE and TPS Valparaiso will help facilitate cloud-based communication in real-time and provide a platform to drive transparency and collaboration among partners".
