XVELA Partners with Container Institute for Next-Generation Stowage Planning Training in Latin America


Modern, Cloud-Based Planning Tool to be Demonstrated in Container
Cargo Planning Course

the world's first cloud collaboration platform for ocean carriers and
terminal operators, today announced a partnership with Container
Institute, a new Rio de Janeiro-based school focused on sharing industry
knowledge with the next generation of stowage planners. XVELA's
cloud-based Collaborative Stowage Planning solution will be demonstrated
in the Container Institute's Container Cargo Planning course as an
example of a modern stowage planning tool.

XVELA provides a fully-featured multi-port vessel stowage planning
solution that provides access to planning information anytime, anywhere.
The solution allows carrier planners to collaborate with terminal
planners to jointly drive new efficiencies throughout the stowage
planning and execution process through shared data and actionable
visibility across the vessel rotation. XVELA also includes real-time
stability, strength and lashing calculations through integration with
the industry-leading Navis MACS3 loading computer – ensuring that
stowage planners are seeing the same stability results as those used by
the ship's crew.

"We are happy to have the opportunity to demonstrate XVELA's
revolutionary cargo planning tool for our students at Container
Institute through this international partnership," said Rafael Malafaia,
head of Container Institute. "We wish to deliver comprehensive cargo
planning training to our students, including experience with the most
modern tools available. Our partnership with XVELA makes this possible
by allowing us to introduce our students to XVELA's cutting-edge,
collaborative planning tools."

XVELA President Guy Rey-Herme stated, "We are pleased to partner with
Container Institute so they can prepare their students for a successful
cargo planning career by exposing them to modern tools such as XVELA as
part of their thorough curriculum."
