ONE connects to CargoWise to enable automatic digital rate transfer
Singaporean container line Ocean Network Express (ONE) has gone live with automated digital transfer of contract rates and global tariffs capable of feeding WiseTech Global’s logistics execution platform, CargoWise.
The digital connection enables ONE to share fully digital, confidential contracted rates and published global tariff surcharges with customers using a standardised CargoWise rates structure and Application Programming Interface (API), making the booking process faster and easier.
The rollout of fully digital, real-time feeds will be progressive and cover all major global trade lanes as it expands to other CargoWise customers and product family users, according to a statement.
Sundeep Sibal, senior vice president (VP) of global commercial and service management at ONE, commented, “Offering a live connection between ONE and CargoWise allows us to deliver a rapid, accurate, and complete picture to our shared customers that will ultimately lead to long-term efficiencies and cost reductions.”
After highlighting the long-term cooperation of the two companies on digital booking and tracking messaging, Ashley Skaanild, regional VP of logistics data & connectivity at WiseTech Global, said, “In an industry dominated by spreadsheets and costly data and error prone rekeying of information, ONE has shown real technology and business leadership in progressing their digital connectivity to rates, to help our shared customers connect securely and reliably in real-time.”
Skaanild added, “We continue to work hard to link, automate and digitize ocean carriers and to remove vast amounts of manual work that create cost, inaccuracy and delay in sales, operations, and finance functions. The CargoWise digital adaptors provide standardized, easy to implement connections for ocean carriers to deliver schedules, contract rates, spot and dynamic pricing, ebooking, tracking and invoice management, for ocean carriers and their high-volume customers.”
