Hapag-Lloyd will be using software from Intelligent Cargo Systems to monitor fleet operations and optimise route and vessel performance.
Intelligent Cargo Systems’ fleet performance platform CargoMate provides carriers with real-time port call visibility and automated notifications of important port events such as estimated time of completion, enabling fleet managers to dynamically manage coastal schedules.
According to Intelligent Cargo Systems, the data collected ‘unlocks new route optimisation insights helping shipping companies reduce fuel costs and improving environmental impact’.
‘By having a real-time view of every port call on the CargoMate platform, we’re able to observe port calls in greater detail without requesting progress updates from the terminal or local agent,’ said Jörn Springer, Senior Director, Network Operations at Hapag-Lloyd. ‘It has uncovered new cost-savings, and will continue our drive to improve performance and visibility for our customers.’
