LgMAR and SHIPNEXT form partnership

Shipping related email software firm LgMAR and digital shipping marketplace SHIPNEXT have formed a partnership, enabling interconnectivity between the shipping and chartering world.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} In the last few years, many individual start-ups have been trying to innovate the workflow. The problem according to Shipnext is that often neither one of the solutions offer a complete set of solutions. It is these short-falls that never allowed a broad use of any single solution, and so everyone stayed with their ever glowing data flow and, predominantly, emails.

Since its start in 2016, SHIPNEXT developed a patented concept of processing emails and structuring the data for instant Cargo-to-Ship matching and freight trading on the Digital Shipping Marketplace. This allowed its users to either manage their internal emails flows, or, optionally, have their internal data enforced with data from the Digital Exchange – SHIPNEXT Marketplace, adding thousands of cargo and open ship positions from the Marketplace.

A normal manager would not be able to handle that much data at once, as information flow and cargo combinations result in thousands of emails and messages. So SHIPNEXT uses Natural Language processing, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Big Data Analysis to help instant data processing, with the help of other data points such as fleet data and open positions, navigational restrictions, port costs and restrictions, weather, and more.

According to SHIPNEXT, this will ultimately help brokers, shipping and logistics managers receive verified and reliable data right in their Work Station – TELIX.

TELIX is a sophisticated email software with tools required by the Brokers and other shipping professionals for communication and trading. Each of the TELIX users will get an option to further enhance their Email Solution to more of a “Workstation”. This will, above all, allow instant Freight search, Cargo-to-Ship matching, access to over 17.000 daily open ship positions, port-related data, automated freight calculator, bunker and port costs, and more.

Optionally, through partnership between LgMAR and SHIPNEXT, each user of TELIX receives a chance for a seamless flow from receiving a freight request and down to creating a Shipping Contract and an Electronic Bill of Lading.

This cooperation will further empower Shipbrokers which will, as has been proof-tested, become some 7-8 times more efficient in managing their workflow. {/mprestriction}

  • StratumFive launches collaborative workspace

    StratumFive has launched Podium, a collaborative workspace that connects applications, data, and people, across the maritime community.

    Podium connects any data source or third party application and integrates them within its timeline architecture. Users can quickly visualise correlated data streams in an agile dashboard environment, transforming operational decision-making, in a flexible and collaborative workspace.

    Powerful features and configurability allow users across an enterprise to easily build their own dashboards, customised data mapping, interactive displays and alerts, from any location. This enables owners, operators and managers to streamline and standardise the data they use, whilst reducing costs by discarding duplicate data sets.

    Podium ingests, unifies and visualises billions of data points and scales to accommodate user demands and data volumes, whilst maintaining complete consistency in terms of output for all users.

    In addition, the Podium partnership program will enable start-ups and existing digital providers to expand their maritime presence easily by accessing StratumFive’s global client base, data holdings and technical infrastructure.

    Podium launches with a series of in-house options including voyage monitoring, weather routing and StratumFive’s next generation compliance and tracking applications.

    “With many years spent in operations around the world, I have been frustrated by the inefficiencies and costs caused by poor data acquisition, processing and communication across applications and stakeholders,” said Mike Powell, strategy director, StratumFive.

    “Until now, digitalisation has often made things worse for people working on ships and at shore, as increasing enterprise-wide data and information demands require too much manual intervention and effort. Currently, high levels of activity do not always equal productivity.

    “Podium is designed to be the workspace for the whole enterprise, linking data and applications, ensuring all stakeholders not only start from the same page, but also have the tools they need to maximise the efficiency and value of their part of the voyage.”

    Ross Martin, COO, StratumFive, added: “It is true that shipping businesses globally are currently not reaping the promised rewards of digitalisation - but Podium provides the solution that our industry desperately needs to realise cost savings and other operational efficiencies.

    “A growing number of operators are laboriously gathering data from a number of silos and trying to make sense of it using generic ‘business intelligence’ tools. These tools do not offer the maritime domain specific functionality, nor the degree of automation required to make smarter operational decisions faster.”

    StratumFive consulted closely with the industry in the development of Podium. Major owners and operators are already using the platform across their daily operations, with reportedly more preparing to adopt the technology in the near future.
