Stowage planning training in Brazil

XVELA Partners with Container Institute to offer “Next-Generation Stowage Planning Training” in Rio de Janeiro.

Earlier this year XVELA announced that Brazilian shipping line and logistics company Log-In Logistica had become the first shipping line in Latin America to “collaborate on stowage planing” using the XVELA cloud solution. As well as using XVELA to do its own planning, Log-In Logistica began collaborating on vessel call planning with Tecon Salvador.


With XVELA planners on both sides of the quay can use the same systems across the stowage planning process. “XVELA also includes real-time stability, strength and lashing calculations through integration with the industry-leading Navis MACS3 loading computer – ensuring that stowage planners are seeing the same stability results as those used by the ship’s crew,” XVELA noted.


A key factor for XVELA to achieve its goal of collaborative vessel planning using shared data across ports and terminals is having people trained to use its software, and the company has taken several initiatives in this direction. Navis and XVELA have announced agreements with universities covering training in the US and in China, where with Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) delivers training in both the MACS3 loading computer and Navis StowMan stowage planing software.


XVELA is now announcing a partnership with Container Institute, a new Rio de Janeiro-based school focused on “sharing industry knowledge with the next generation of stowage planners”. Container Institute will “demonstrate” XVELA’s cloud-based Collaborative Stowage Planning solution in its Container Cargo Planning course “as an example of a modern stowage planning tool”, XVELA stated.


“We are happy to have the opportunity to demonstrate XVELA’s revolutionary cargo planning tool for our students at Container Institute through this international partnership,” said Rafael Malafaia, head of Container Institute. “We wish to deliver comprehensive cargo planning training to our students, including experience with the most modern tools available. Our partnership with XVELA makes this possible by allowing us to introduce our students to XVELA’s cutting-edge, collaborative planning tools.”


XVELA President Guy Rey-Herme stated, “We are pleased to partner with Container Institute so they can prepare their students for a successful cargo planning career by exposing them to modern tools such as XVELA as part of their thorough curriculum.”
