Sumitha Sampath, XVELA’s Vice President of Operations, will present XVELA’s solution in a “Technology Innovation Jam” at the 18th TPM Annual Conference, March 4-7, 2018 in Long Beach.
The premise of the Tech Jam began last September, when the Journal of Commerce set out to identify the worst pain points of BCOs, retailers, manufacturers, and other shippers of ocean containerized cargo. After narrowing the list down to the 17 “most painful” points, the JOC challenged technology providers to solve them, with JOC editor Peter Tirschwell formally issuing the challenge in a LinkedIn article titled, “How good are you?”
Out of a total of 80 proposals submitted by tech firms, 3PLs, and even a railroad, XVELA was selected as one of eight tech providers invited to present their solution. Sumitha’s presentation will focus on how XVELA’s actionable visibility can address the BCO pain point of losing complete cargo visibility during transshipment.
