Chevron launches digital solutions suite to support ship efficiency

Chevron Marine has launched a suite of digital solutions to support shipping’s journey into a more efficient future.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Chevron Marine Cloud Solutions, including the customer order management platform OnePort launched last year, offers shipowners and operators tools with which to analyse, manage and ultimately help to improve their operational performance.

The solutions, developed under Chevron’s Business Technology Innovation (BTI) initiative, are part of an on-going, multi-year digitization investment program. They are designed to integrate seamlessly with customers’ processes, meaning that users can easily adopt the tools and begin to reap the benefits of online vessel management.

Chevron Marine’s e-commerce platform OnePort dramatically reduces order management time by eliminating unnecessary work from the process of lubricant procurement. The consolidation of several common supply-chain transactions such as product availability inquiries, order confirmations and delivery receipts (MLDR’s) help customers to access information quickly and in a reduced time frame. Customers report seeing faster order turn around, especially over weekends and during public holidays when offices can be closed, and time differences can impact order processing.

By improving visibility of product availability by accessing real-time data on in-port information, the digital tool makes it easier for customers of Chevron Marine to get what they need anywhere in the world, whenever they need it. Customer service representatives continue to provide localised support, and real-time enquiry handling are also available to help manage deliveries.

The extended digital platform integrates data with human intelligence to enable customers to take decisions to help optimise vessel performance. Detailed asset data, including recommendations from marine technical specialists based on the analysis of used oil samples – wherever owners have taken advantage of Chevron Marine’s FAST and DOT.FAST analysis services – create a full picture of the operating profile of any number of vessels in a fleet.

Steve Gormer, Chevron Marine digital enablement manger said: “The launch of OnePort marks a milestone in our digitisation journey and is just one of the ways we are leveraging technology to provide solutions-based support for our customers. By integrating data sources, from order management to technical reports, we are providing intuitive tools that offer a total view of fleet operations that, ultimately, can help keep our customers’ costs to a minimum.” {/mprestriction}

  • Halifax streamlines port operations with Saab IT system

    The Halifax Port Authority has awarded Saab a contract to supply a Port Management Information System (PMIS). The system will streamline port operations, allowing port departments, 80 service providers, customers and other members of the port community to further improve their collaboration.

    The Port of Halifax is a full-service, deep water port on the eastern seaboard of Canada and the only east coast Canadian port that can receive Ultra Class Container Vessels carrying over 10,000 TEU’s. The Port is of great economic significance to Canada, connecting Halifax to 150 countries.

    “The contract for the Port of Halifax further strengthens our position in the port management market, not only in North America, but worldwide,” said Tomas Hjelmberg, head of Saab's Maritime Traffic Management Department. “The Port has a grand technology innovation plan and we are proud to have been chosen as their visionary partner. Our cooperation with the Port will significantly boost our product innovation.”

    The PMIS automates the planning and execution of a wide variety of port operations, from everything related to vessel visits such as resources and services, to complex multi-dimensional client contracts. An important aspect is the resulting accurate billing of services rendered. 

    “We are a data driven port. We expect the PMIS to be the single source of information that will transform our business. It will make operations transparent to all members in the port community in real time. It will also make it much easier to measure performance,” said Captain Allan Gray, president and CEO of the Halifax Port Authority. “We decided to work with  Saab because of their track record. They have the best mix of functionality, cost and proven results in the market.”

    The PMIS will be delivered by Saab’s Port Management in Vancouver, along with a multi-year support contract and is scheduled for completion in Q4 of 2021.
