Maritime Use Cases

We enable maritime organizations deliver an interoperable data efficient ecosystem and gain a competitive advantage through advanced analytics with tailored supply chain planning & optimization solutions. With our wealth of industry knowledge and experience we support numerous maritime use cases.


Run different capacity scenarios

Realize a more efficient and optimal cargo load for all voyages and make sure all cargo arrives on schedule. Many organizations are facing volatile capacity demands, resulting in dynamic and complex planning and scheduling processes.

Voyage planning, tonnage planning, vessel scheduling and allocation management are all part of these processes. Planners would like to have the ability to run diverse capacity scenarios, which enables them to understand the impact of specific cargo arrangements and vessel allocation changes.

Meaningful information on capacity requirements, the exact vessel size should be available for each line/trade to optimize costs, while respecting customer requirements on capacity and transit times.

How to bring this all together in one integrated planning to make the right decisions?

Advanced Analytics

Numerous supply chain analytics use cases for maritime in whatever category you may need support:

Assets, Demand, Process and Performance


Solve Disruptions & Reduce Idle Time

How to better handle tonnage & voyage planning as well as operational planning to decrease operational costs?

How to handle a wide-range of process complexities and realize real-time and collaborative planning including the ability to conduct scenario-based planning and be able to quickly respond to disruptions?

We have a strong market recognition of building optimal, transparent and up-to-date planning for all vessels within a company. This has increased average load factors and facilitated stronger insight into planning processes  and better on-time performance for cargo loads. We also optimize container logistics and port operations, resulting in gains directly to the bottom-line.
