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 is committed to working with terminal operators, ocean carriers, and their operational partners to enable real-time information sharing and collaboration across the container supply chain," said Guy Rey-Herme, President, XVELA.
