XVELA, creators of the world´s first cloud collaboration platform for ocean carriers and terminal operators, has received the 2017 Stratus Award for Cloud Collaboration by the Business Intelligence Group, the company said.

The Stratus Awards honor companies, products and people that offer unique solutions that take advantage of cloud technologies.

The Cloud Collaboration Award is presented to a product or service that helps organizations and groups meet, share and work in the cloud. XVELA provides the industry´s only cloud collaboration solution that brings terminal operators and ocean carriers together on a single, secure, shared platform to facilitate real-time, many-to-many data exchange and collaboration, beginning with stowage planning and quickly expanding to shipping execution.

With XVELA, shipping lines and terminal operators are able to connect, simplify and synchronize their operations, improve resource utilization, and proactively adjust to potential disruptions while improving customer service. By providing an industry collaboration platform with shared stowage planning information and actionable visibility into both carrier and terminal operations, XVELA empowers stakeholders to maximize efficiency and cost savings from stowage planning through execution.

XVELA provides a transformative cloud collaboration platform that drives transparency, efficiency and profitability to a network of ocean carriers and terminal operators. Through real-time collaboration using shared, unbiased data, plus actionable visibility across the vessel rotation, XVELA enables terminals, carriers and operational partners to work together to synchronize their operations and forge new efficiencies throughout the stowage planning and execution process. The result is a win-win solution that allows both terminals and carriers to see the full stowage picture, improve customer service and reliability, and capture substantial untapped savings across the ocean supply chain.

Backed by Navis, the global technology standard for managing the movement of cargo through terminals, XVELA operates as an independent entity focused on stowage planning and management innovation. For more information, visit www.xvela.com.
