Ocean Logistics 2019: Digitization Continues to Lead Trends
Ocean logistics in 2019 are demanding advanced, comprehensive and reliable information to cohesively support logistics needs, especially in an era when technology solutions are becoming the standard to successful operations. The continuation of digitization is a trend that industry players are not only prepared for this year but eagerly anticipating and implementing with each new solution that presents itself. Digitization continues to make its mark in the logistics and supply chain management sectors as a whole, but when it comes to ocean logistics specifically, the stakes are higher, and the solutions require careful consideration before a hasty implementation occurs.
Recently, Avantida announced Maersk’s implementation offering Container Triangulation for the Canadian and U.S. platforms, enabling communication between dispatchers and planners almost instantly. The automated process will take place on Avantida’s platform, providing an opportunity for the company to penetrate the market regions.
“Both shipping lines and transporters continue to look for agile, cost-saving tools that can optimize their planning, and our platform has a proven track record of improving efficiency,” said Luc De Clerck, CEO, Avantida. “The platform has changed the way shipping lines in Europe are doing business, and after our launch in Mexico, it was a natural next step to introduce Avantida to the United States and Canada.”
Leading companies, such as global shipping lines leader Maersk, continue to make strides to eliminate manual processes and replace them with seamless management systems that remove time-consuming and error-prone tasks, specifically with administration. Consider implementing strategies that support refreshed approaches to operations.
