BHP and Klaveness in digital collaboration with steel mill

Mining giant BHP is teaming up with one of shipping’s most committed digital pioneers in the latest example of tech collaboration to drive transparency.

BHP is using Klaveness Digital’s CargoValue solution to allow the miner and and its partners to access the same shipping information in real-time. Customers on the platform can also see shipping schedules and calculate the impact on their inventory and production.

As a first proof of concept, BHP invited a global steel producer to trial the CargoValue solution. The proof of concept has provided the steel producer with what was described in a release as “actionable insight” into its raw material flow, with real-time updates on unexpected deviations to the schedule, allowing the company to better forecast inventory, manage safety buffers and plan production.

“By partnering with Klaveness Digital, we get to explore new ways of delivering value to our customers. The CargoValue solution developed by Klaveness Digital provides a new way to securely share cargo and vessel information with our customers around the globe, changing the way we interact with our clients,” commented Rashpal Bhatti, BHP’s vice president in charge of shipping.

“We truly believe our partnership with BHP will improve the way industry stakeholders collaborate and share shipping information. Solutions such as CargoValue will enable real-time and contextual collaboration across stakeholders such as suppliers, agents, brokers and other modes of transportation,” commented Aleksander Stensby, managing director at Klaveness Digital, part of Norway’s Torvald Klaveness shipping empire.
