Singapore-based container line Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced plans to develop and integrate a smart container solution across its global fleet in collaboration with Sony Network Communications Europe.
ONE expected the technology-enabled containers to give the company greater insights into its box fleet. The data will enable better visibility of the containers, faster and proactive decision making and more, allowing more efficient container movement, according to ONE's statement.
Erik Lund, head of the Tracking division, Visilion, at Sony Europe, noted, “The real-time insights gained across ONE’s fleet will allow them to further optimise their shipping business and in doing so, improve customer service.”
ONE said that its customers will also benefit from smart container solutions as they will be able to access live updates throughout a shipment’s journey, while it will also provide more reliable shipping data for easy, transparent communication with relevant stakeholders.
Hiroki Tsujii, ONE's managing director of the Product & Network division, commented, “Now, together with Sony, we are excited to create the future of container shipping. This is a future where we have access to the insights we need to offer our customers a higher quality of service to forge a new standard of process excellence.”
