Klaveness Digital touts digital twin solution for the aluminium industry

Klaveness Digital has partnered with key players in the aluminium industry to develop a new solution for managing supply chain risk and reducing the waste often associated with maritime logistics. The solution is part of CargoValue, an intelligent shipping and logistics platform that allows users to plan and manage shipping schedules and inventories in one, unified solution.

CargoValue already caters to a large share of the aluminium market outside of China and is growing at a fast pace as Klaveness Digital continues to develop new functionality to solve everyday industry pain points.

The new solution will enable players to build a real-time digital twin of their maritime supply chains with multiple ‘what if’ scenarios to help evaluate the uncertainty and risks that typically lives throughout the planning and execution process. Examples could be delayed shipments due to inclement weather, port clashes, or scheduling revisions to optimise working capital between production sites.

“With shipping a strong contributor to scope 3 emissions (or indirect supply chain emissions), and several industry leaders aiming to make significant reductions on emissions by 2030, the initiative also empowers players to improve decision making and reduce the waste that can occur through increased waiting time for vessels,” Klaveness Digital stated in a release today.

“We share the view that digitalisation offers a new degree of resiliency and responsiveness, enabling industrial companies to react to disruptions, anticipate and adjust in real-time as conditions in the supply chain change. After successful testing and deployment within the aluminium sector, we are excited to introduce Scenarios by CargoValue to other industries soon,” said Aleksander Stensby, managing director of Klaveness Digital, a company spun out by Norwegian shipowner Torvald Klaveness three years ago.

  1. Klavenes,- Really? What is this, – I mean really? Another useless IT approach … But hey folks !! Another way of draining your wallet. Weather systems are maybe changing (climate change or what do we have ..) but the Pacific is still Pacific and the Atlantic is still Atlantic .. KLAVENES – you are producing hype. No one actually needs this. Because we already know. You/We aren’t able to predict anything. ONE ship recently stuck in Suez and all our/your systems will be fkd/up. Your IT developers did not & will not foresee anything like this in their models. You are welcome to counter me
