Hapag-Lloyd enters partnership with Intelligent Cargo Systems

The world’s fifth-largest shipping line to utilise CargoMate platform

Intelligent Cargo Systems and German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd, have today announced they are entering into a technology partnership.

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.

“It is a great milestone for us to announce our partnership with Hapag-Lloyd.” says Chris Jones, CEO of Intelligent Cargo Systems, “We’ve worked closely with them in recent years, and we’re excited to continue developing new opportunities to improve their services.”

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.

“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.” adds 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.”

The partnership with Hapag-Lloyd cements Intelligent Cargo Systems as a leader in the development of port call optimisation technology. Its CargoMate platform allows ship operators to monitor vessel cargo operations in real-time, in any port worldwide.  The data collected unlocks new route optimisation insights helping shipping companies reduce fuel costs and improving environmental impact.
