Navis has announced the merger of leading provider of supply chain technology solutions, Kaleris, and launched a new cloud-based logistics solution to optimise supply chain workflows.
According to a recent statement, the new Execution & Visibility Platform leverages operational data directly from yard management, transportation management, maintenance and repair, port and terminal, and vessel operations to eliminate data gaps and dark spots within pivotal execution points.
The platform then connects that operating data to workflows within the execution ecosystem, resulting in high-value outcomes for shippers, carriers, terminals, and asset owners, including:
Reduced non-performance time
Increased operating visibility to shipment status and operating events
Improved planning and scheduling to enhance efficiency and utilisation
“By creating a global platform, we can help our customers improve execution across the entire lifecycle of a shipment,” said Kirk Knauff, CEO of Kaleris.
“Navis adds a vital mode to our customer ecosystem and uniquely positions our platform to unlock new value for shippers, carriers, terminals, and asset owners through significant efficiency and productivity gains.
“They can pass this productivity through to their customers, delivering better outcomes for everyone through a connected, visible, sustainable supply chain.”
Through the platform, both companies aim to provide shippers with gain real-time visibility of cargo status, enabling them to drive predictable, timely operations and take prompt action to reduce dwell times, demurrage and impediments.
“Connecting execution and visibility solutions is the key to a resilient supply chain,” added Knauff.“Knowing the real-time status of shipments as they move through each node in the supply chain has a powerful downstream effect, and this insight optimises all of the operations and modes that follow.”
Last week, Navis and DNV announced a new joint solution to minimise the risk of container incidents at sea.The new solution combines DNV Anti-Roll Assist and Navis Lashing Monitor.
