Waterborne Logistics

Codeatech contributes to the enhancement of ports’ competitive strength and to the reduction in logistics costs through fast and accurate transfer, sharing and re-use of information in the port community.

Codeatech has developed a framework, under the name of X-Logistics, to address the business challenges in waterborne logistics. The framework consists of various modules each with a specific function. For instance the transport module enables customers to optimise inland transportation and to reduce empty mileage. Hence the solution provides better control of transport costs and utilisation of transport equipment. The solution integrates multi-modal transport diversity and is suitable for companies having their own equipment or those outsource forwarding and transport related services. In the latter situation, preferred transport providers are appointed in the transport plan, while they receive transport trips and relevant instructions directly.

Another module handles the operations of container freight stations (CFS) and inland container depots (ICD). It involves intricate flow of information and goods between multiple stakeholders. The framework tackles bonded and non-bonded warehousing, stuffing and stripping, tallying, release and delivery of general cargo, manifest administration, container inventory, container maintenance and repair, damage and loss of shipments, yard and warehouse stacking control among others.

Codeatech brings extensive domain knowledge and technical expertise to the logistics domain. The solutions address customers’ specific needs and provide management with complete visibility and tools for business analysis. Codeatech also provides state of the art enterprise application and bespoke solutions for waterborne logistics service providers, cargo agents and forwarders. These solutions enable customers to plan, optimize, monitor and control their business via new-generation technology and latest business thinking. Codeatech’s objective is to establish long-term and collaborative relationship with customers in order to develop tailor made solutions, which are future proof.
