Digitalization is driving the shipping industry, noted China Shipping Gazette in announcing this year’s list. As the world returns to normal, the industry is deriving significant benefits from this trend that took a big leap forward over the past few years defined by serious challenges and market difficulties. IQAX’s innovative solutions like IQAX Focus, IQAX TrackIt and IQAX eBL contributed significantly to digitalization in shipping.
Based on the IoT, AI, and machine learning, IQAX Focus enables users to significantly improve the efficiency of logistics management. It provides end-to-end visibility and real time monitoring of both dry and reefer cargo through a single platform. The use of AI reduces false alarms, facilitates smart alerts, and accelerates compliance processes. This plug-and-play solution can be deployed quickly and relies on rechargeable and reusable devices.
IQAX TrackIt is a real-time ocean shipment visibility platform for shippers and non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCCs) that uses a digital twin and AI to visualize and gain insights about shipments in transit. IQAX TrackIt empowers shippers to proactively identify potential delays that may require attention, view predictive departure and arrival times for better planning, provides map and calendar views, and allows shippers to stay one step ahead of their shipments.
IQAX eBL facilitates the use of electronic bills of lading (B/Ls) based on blockchain technology. IQAX eBL allows the industry to move away from traditional paper-based B/Ls. B/Ls are crucial to global trade through their role confirming ownership of goods. Electronic B/Ls have myriad of advantages over cumbersome paper-based ones in terms of information accuracy, data security, efficiency, energy savings and low carbon emissions.
