OAKLAND, Calif. & ROTTERDAM, Netherlands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For businesses across the ocean supply chain, providing end-to-end visibility and predictability is vital for staying ahead of the competition, yet planning processes across the container flow currently take place in silos, with little standardization or real-time information exchange, and few opportunities for collaboration. However, an industry survey released today at the TOC Europe Conference by Navis and XVELA, both part of Cargotec, in coordination with JOC.com/IHS Markit, found that many executives are realizing the immense value to be gained from a more connected, transparent and collaborative approach. As a result, they are exploring cloud-based, collaborative data-sharing platforms to provide all stakeholders with the real-time visibility and connectivity required to improve efficiency and productivity.
