System integration for Hamburg Süd

Hamburg Südamerikanische Dampfschifffahrtsgesellschaft is among the ten biggest container liners in the world and offers forward-looking logistical solutions for the whole supply chain. For the transportation of goods, they do not only use their own fleet of 130 ships but also book container slots on other shipping companies.

In cooperation with Herberg Systems Hamburg Süd is now providing its customer with modern solutions for digitalization. Therefore, the customers of Hamburg Süd can be informed even better about the status of their goods.

The Strategy: Collection, handling, evaluation and supply of data

Unlike in aviation, there are so far no standardized schedules in shipping. Therefore, Hamburg Süd developed with us an automated solution for departure and arrival times of ships within four months. Additionally, we were assigned to the data acquisition and data processing, as well as the provision of modern interfaces.

Furthermore, an appealing data visualization is part of our duties. Following this successful digitalization project, we are working on other projects, in which Hamburg Süd is using us as the central data integrator in the operational area. We would like to thank Hamburg Süd for a cooperation based on partnership.

Schedule management for the shipping company Vega

Vega Reederei is a traditional, advanced and international bulk and container shipping company located in Hamburg. Vega Reederei offers a spectrum of all maritime services.

Early on, did Vega Reederei realize the future opportunities of standardized reporting solutions for their fleet. Complicated e-mail correspondence, repetitive work steps, and missing information should be avoided.

Our Strategy: standardized and web-based schedule information

As a solution, Vega Reederei decided to use our Fleettracker service. It offers a standardized, web-based schedule management system, which can be used by all authorized users like supplier, agents, broker, affiliates and of course members of the Vega Reederei. All schedule information like ETA, ETD and agent data are delivered in a clear layout. Every participant will be automatically informed about changes in the schedule. Thus, Vega Reederei has more time and energy for more relevant work. Thank you for the great cooperation!

CO2 Analysis according to EU decree

According to decree (EU) 2015/757 by the European Parliament all ships must document their CO2 emissions and have to send it in a standardized, electronic form to the EU by the 1st of January 2018. Until the 31st of August 2017, all shipping companies need a certified monitoring plan, which shows in detail, how the ships record their CO2 emission in European waters.

The strategy: monitoring, reporting & verification (MRV)

With our customers, we developed a System, which provides the CO2 emissions according to the requirements of the EU. For this, we use the data which is collected by our integration solution Fleettracker and depict it following the European norms. We did develop the Fleettracker MRV package with the independent and MRV accredited verifier Swiss Climate. This package includes beside the standard software an MRV compliant Monitoring Plan and a certificate for the annual emission report for ships starting from 5000 GT.
