CEVA Logistics said an agreement through a partnership with supply-chain visibility platform provider Project44.

The global ocean agreement follows the one between the two companies in July 2021 to provide enhanced visibility for Ceva’s Ground customers.

As a result of integrating Project44’s ocean and port visibility systems, Ceva said it would be able to provide greater accuracy and timeliness in the tracking process of ocean shipments.

The system uses AIS data to track cargo while it is at sae. When not at sea, shipment notifications and analytics will include other carrier milestones, transfers, and dwell times, as well as exception alerts and management.

Ceva said the Project44 track and trace functionality will be directly integrated into its digital portal called MyCeva.

Ceva Logistics global head of ocean freight Stephane Gautrais said data is like gold in the shipping industry.

“Project44 will help us mine the value from the data, all for the benefit of our customers. To integrate leading visibility directly into our MyCeva platform is just one more example of our commitment to responsive logistics,” Mr Gautrais said.

“We understand what our customers want and need, and we deliver. This time around, it’s greater ocean shipment visibility, but there’s certainly more to come.”

Project44 founder and CEO Jett McCandless said the dynamic nature of the ocean shipping industry exposes the essential need for high quality, real-time supply chain visibility insights.

“Ceva Logistics’ commitment to helping shippers optimise costs, performance and emissions using project44’s Movement platform demonstrates their commitment to delivering an exceptional customer experience,” Mr McCandless said.

In May of last year, Project44 announced it had expanded into the Australasian market after opening a Melbourne office in February 2022.
