Digital planning, mapping and tracking of your shipments, cargo and deck utilization

Page last modified

Keep an overview of all cargo movements within ports & terminals, transits between onshore base and offshore sites. Plan your cargo movements and lift sequences with intuitive drag and drop interface in your web browser.


The cargo is tracked using computer vision, utilizing a combination of unique features for each container, such as size, marks and corrosion and our proprietary AI-based optical character recognition (OCR), trained specifically for the end application and environment.

Digital Logistics uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to automatically track cargo movements between ports, vessels and offshore sites and platforms, including internal cargo movements. It automatically registers the exact locations of cargo on individual loading areas and vessel decks. Digital yard planning and location updates ensures maximum efficiency and operations.

Digital Logistics provides the tools and technology to move your logistics planning and operations into the autonomous age by providing tools for digital planning, automated tracking and reporting, with digital twins of your on- and offshore sites. No instrumentation of cargo is needed - tracking is performed using AI & cameras at cranes and reach stackers.
