XVELA and Navis Take Home Top Honors at 2017 Transport Arabia Excellence Awards
XVELA and Navis both took home awards at the Transport Arabia Excellence Awards recently held in Dubai. Craig Halford, Global Sales Director at XVELA, accepted the Best Digital Innovation of the Year award and Chuck Schneider, VP and GM of the Americas for Navis, accepted the TOS Technology Company of the Year award at the awards gala on December 4, 2017.
“Being recognized by the Transport Arabia Excellence Awards for the innovative advances to ocean shipping technology being made by both Navis and XVELA to make global trade smarter, safer and more sustainable for all, is a great source of pride for our team,” said Andy Barrons, Chief Strategy Officer, Navis. “At the start of 2017, we unveiled our plans for a revitalized software strategy that enables container terminals and carriers alike to streamline their ocean supply chains and better collaborate together. Receiving these awards less than a year later is confirmation that we are on the right track and we look forward to maintaining our presence at the forefront of innovation for the marine shipping industry for years to come.”
XVELA was awarded the Best Digital Innovation of the Year, which recognizes a software project, product or process undertaken by a company in the last year that is unique and innovative, while also providing a gold standard for information technology solutions for the industry at large.
XVELA was chosen for this award as it has developed and successfully piloted the maritime industry’s first cloud collaboration platform for terminal operators and ocean carriers. The XVELA solution enables secure, real-time, many-to-many data exchange and collaboration between terminals, carriers, their operational partners and port constituents, beginning with stowage planning and execution and quickly expanding to berth window management and port call optimization.
The Transport Arabia Excellence Awards are hosted in partnership with Dubai Airports and DP World and recognize the best performing companies and individuals in each of the four modes of transportation – air, sea, rail and road – along with outstanding logistics and supply chain management service providers.
