Navis and Loginno collaborate on smart containers

Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation, has announced a strategic cooperation with Loginno, a logistics IoT visionary.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The partnership will see Navis takes a step towards helping customers achieve container visibility through the availability of smart container technology at the terminal, on the vessel journey and to inland logistics. The collaboration will provide container shippers with more context on the location and condition of container cargo across the end to end container supply chain.

“We see tremendous value in creating a major Contopia use case with Navis and the world’s first digital shipping company, leveraging Navis’ deep knowledge of TOS, stowage planning systems and operational processes for carriers and terminals and our cutting-edge smart container technology,” said Shachar Tal, Loginno founder. “Through the added context from Navis to the Contopia scenario, terminals, carriers and shippers will have more accurate data to make operational decisions about the movement of the cargo, thereby saving costs and improving each constituent’s operations.”

Currently, only about five per cent of containers have tracking sensors on them, making it difficult for shippers to achieve complete transparency throughout the shipping lifecycle. Recently, Navis has been exploring ways to provide more insights for ocean carriers, terminal operators and their logistic partners and customers to help them connect the dots between container and cargo location tracking and the actual logistics management of the container. Loginno’s advanced shipping container “brain” sensors are replacing one vent of the container and measure cargo conditions as well as the container’s location and external surroundings. When data from these sensors is combined with Navis’ data, all parties can gain deeper insight into the condition and movement of the freight, its actual versus planned arrival and critical events such as when a container has been damaged, when it actually is available for pick-up, when it is on customs hold.

“This cooperation is in line with Navis’ continuing vision of supporting the end-to-end container flow through innovation,” said Andy Barrons, chief strategy office, Navis. “Through our Navis SMART initiative and this new cooperation with Loginno, we hope to open a new door to more real-time data analytics in ocean shipping and explore more use cases for applying intelligence to the container, and unlock Contopia.”{/mprestriction}

  • A giant leap forward for maritime IoT

    Author: Andrew Loretta, director, maritime business development for ORBCOMM.

    We are proud to be a part of the recently announced partnership with AAC Clyde Space AB and SAAB AB that is ushering in a new era in maritime communications through the development of the next generation of a space-based very high frequency (VHF) Data Exchange System (VDES). As the maritime industry embraces digitalisation, we expect a greater emphasis on secure data exchange and ship to shore communication—and we look forward to facilitating this shift in operations through our technology in conjunction with our partners.

    As long-term providers of automatic identification system (AIS) solutions and a touchpoint for space-based maritime data, we at ORBCOMM relish the opportunity to demonstrate the benefits that the significantly increased bandwidth that VDES will offer not just our maritime customers but the supply chain as a whole.

    With up to 32 times more bandwidth than currently offered by AIS and two-way communication, the ground-breaking new system is the next natural step for satellite technology and will allow users to completely rethink the way they manage their fleets. VDES bridges the gap between ship and shore in a way that the industry has been crying out for.

    One of the changes we are most excited about is how innovators now have an open playing field to craft interesting technical solutions specifically for the maritime world without having to scale back their imaginations to match the limited accessibility. The sky is literally the limit once these new satellites come into play and we are keen to work with newcomers and support existing companies with bringing their visions to life so that they can propel this industry forward.

    We have already seen how our AIS data is used not just for real-time vessel and asset tracking, but also as a base line from which interesting insights can be drawn about the global fleet. A good example is a recent article by maritime expert and Navigate PR director Bill Lines, who used our partner Marine Traffic’s data in conjunction with information from the Baltic Exchange to create a snapshot of tanker operating expenses.  

    We already know that VDES can be integrated with existing vessel systems and we are keen to see how ship operators, managers and equipment manufacturers will use this data highways to improve navigation, boost safety, enforce regulations, reduce emissions via fuel consumption, and improve on-board decision making by delivering data-driven insight.

    Work on the project begins next month when AAC Clyde Space will begin manufacturing the satellite that will boast a VDES payload from Saab. We expect to complete the in-orbit VDES capability demonstration of the first EPIC 3U satellite in the first quarter 2023 and are happy to say that ORBCOMM customers can expect to receive AIS data from the new satellite and so will benefit from the project as it comes on line.

    As a larger constellation of VDES satellites is contemplated, we look forward to being the conduit for better-quality data in larger quantities. Our considerable IoT experience puts us in a prime position to reap the benefits of the technology as it evolves, and we are excited to work with our partners and guide them on the best path to maximize the benefits of using VDES technology.

    To learn more about the project, we encourage you to watch this video, which features Greg Flessate, ORBCOMM senior vice president and general manager for Government, AIS and Business Operations, as well as AAC Clyde Space chief executive officer Luis Gomes and Saab’s Christer Fuglesang being interviewed by Rachel Carroll, president and managing partner at Edison.
