Seaboard Marine Goes Live with XVELA’s Collaborative Stowage Solution to Improve Stowage Efficiency and Real-Time Visibility

Regional carrier implements XVELA at significant terminal in Latin
America to optimize stowage planning and execution process

OAKLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–XVELA, the world’s first cloud collaboration platform for ocean carriers
and terminal operators, today announced that Seaboard Marine, a trade
leader in the Western Hemisphere, has gone live with XVELA’s cloud-based
Collaborative Stowage Solution to improve stowage efficiency and
real-time visibility into terminal operations.

The Miami-based carrier will use XVELA’s platform to perform container
vessel stowage planning activities, share key collaborative information
and view real-time terminal operations data to maximize port stay
operations as well as improve communication, efficiency, and
transparency throughout the stowage planning and execution processes.

“Partnering with XVELA has allowed us to streamline our planning and
execution processes to further improve our operational efficiency,” said
Hector Velazco, Manager of Cargo Planning and Operations at Seaboard
Marine. “Having greater visibility into vessel stability and lashing
lets us cut down on the number of iterations of our stowage plan during
the planning process. Visibility into real-time crane operations gives
us the information we need to make decisions such as precisely when to
call the pilot.”

XVELA’s integration with existing systems provides Seaboard Marine with
actionable insights throughout the vessel call, including crane plans,
terminal activity, and estimated completion times. Using XVELA, Seaboard
Marine can leverage these key insights to optimize port side decisions.

“Seaboard Marine is demonstrating its commitment to delivering the
highest level of service to its customers by leveraging XVELA to gather
the data necessary to make the most informed decisions,” said Martin
Bardi, VP of Global Sales for XVELA. “Through XVELA’s integration with
the TOS at an important terminal in Latin America and with the MACS3
onboard loading computer, Seaboard Marine is able to optimize stowage
across each of its services to even further improve its schedule
consistency and reliability.”


XVELA provides a transformative, cloud-based collaboration platform and
maritime business network that drives transparency, efficiency and
profitability to ocean carriers and terminal operators. Through
real-time collaboration, shared data and actionable visibility across
the vessel rotation, XVELA enables terminals, carriers and their
operational partners to work together to simplify, coordinate and
synchronize their operations, starting with stowage planning and quickly
expanding to berth management and port call optimization. The result is
a win-win solution that allows both terminals and carriers to forge new
efficiencies, improve customer service and reliability, and capture
substantial untapped savings across the ocean supply chain.

Backed by Navis, the leading provider of software and services for
terminal operators and ocean carriers, XVELA operates as an independent
entity focused on enabling collaboration and operational visibility. For
