CyberLogitec, the provider of maritime, port/terminal and logistics operations technologies, has announced the deployment of CARA, its Collaboration Platform, at Samudera Shipping Line.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} CARA is a multi-tenanted and unified SaaS platform service, which empowers shipping carriers to capitalise on collaboration among users, optimising on their inter-communication. CARA enables partnering carriers to seamlessly exchange critical information about vessel schedules, special cargo applications, vessel operations performance, joint slot agreements and settlements.

The platform is expected to support Samudera in improving its operational efficiency, document accuracy, traceability and safety of their special cargo (DG/OOG) management. The platform went live in February 2020, making Samudera the first carrier to adopt a platform-based digital solution to manage its special cargo processes as a regional carrier.

Samudera is now able to integrate its email processing through CARA, which then applies automated validation checks with its embedded DG database, enabling email responses via CARA back to its carrier partners. This improves the response time, workflow and overall accuracy of the verification and approval process for such special cargo applications.

Samudera Shipping Line’s commercial director, capt. Tan Meng Toon, said: “Going digital for our special cargo management is a necessary and crucial step for the business to ensure more efficient and accurate assessment and approval for such high-value cargos. This is a critical pillar of Samudera’s strategy to reinforce its position as a leader in containerised regional and feeder services.

Additionally, safety has always been one of our top priorities, CARA minimises risks in the special cargo application processes and overall management. It will guarantee the safety of the personnel, protect the environment and meeting regulatory compliance throughout the cargo handling process.”

Tevin Choi, managing director of CyberLogitec Global, said: “With a single data source, the platform enhances and simplifies Samudera’s current special cargo-handling processes, allows faster, safer decision-making and supports the track-and-trace capabilities. We are enthusiastic about working together with Samudera to develop a truly innovative platform, ensuring that their business supply-chain is as robust and safe as possible.” {/mprestriction}
