The Hamburg-headquartered shipping line will use the CargoMate platform developed by the London-based maritime technology company.
Specifically, the solution is to provide real-time port call visibility and automated notifications of important port events, such as estimated time of completion, all in order to dynamically manage coastal schedules.
"Hapag-Lloyd will use CargoMate software to enable crew to monitor operations more efficiently and safely, while capturing new data to further improve their route and vessel performance," Intelligent Cargo Systems wrote in a press release.
To this Jörn Springer, Senior Director, Fleet Support Center, Hapag-Lloyd, added, "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."
He also underlined, "It has uncovered new cost-savings, and will continue our drive to improve performance and visibility for our customers."
