Tittle:
Open access web platform for multi-modal container logistics
Summary:
Facing the needs and possibilities for digitalisation in container logistics sector, a Northern German SME developed a web platform which unites communications and processing of container logistics and drastically cuts down manpower and costs. Shipping companies, trucking companies and forwarding agents can use the platform free of charge and only pay for concrete bookings. Technical cooperation agreements with pilot clients are sought. Financial agreements are offered to investors.
Description:
Though awareness of possibilities and needs for digitalisation processes is rising in logistics sector, market ready solutions for comprehensive organisation and management of container logistics are only advancing very slowly. Because of missing interfaces, exchange of data is slow and complex: e.g. communication and processing are separated.
For the big data volumes in container logistics, this causes not only a lot of manual work and thus slows down processes, but also reduces possibilities to increase efficiency by comparing and matching of data.
The lack of transparency results e.g. in a high rate of containers carrying no load on return journeys. While some bigger shipping companies are developing own solutions, they only use internal information and cannot fully exploit the potential a broader data base would offer.

Facing the needs and possibilities in container logistics sector, a Northern German startup company developed a web platform which unites communications and processing of container logistics and drastically cuts down manpower and costs. Access is open and free of charge, fees are only charged for concrete bookings. All generated data is naturally digitalized and is available for evaluation, analysis or other future products/services.

Market launch is planned for autumn 2017. Throughout development process, the solution has intensively been tested in cooperation with a container shipping company as well as truckers and forwarders.

The SME is searching for contacts to container shipping companies as well as to truckers and forwarding agencies as pilot clients. Technical cooperation agreements for pilot phase are most welcome.

In order to realize the final steps for implementation of the platform the company is willing to give shares to an additional investor. Financial agreements are offered. Being an open web platform, the solution cannot be sold exclusively, thus investments should be neutral to the market.
