How Hellmann uses Ocean Insights to help a car maker. Precise ETA helps in just-in-time production.
In today’s just-in-time manufacturing environment delays in shipped parts almost always lead to significant production issues. This was precisely the problem a large U.S. automaker wanted to avoid. Carrier updates of the ETA a week prior to a containership’s arrival just weren’t good enough. Hellmann, the automaker’s logistics provider, needed complete supply-chain visibility via a state-of-the-art tracking and tracing solution.

“We have to check 70 vessels twice a day. If we trace vessels on carrier websites, it takes approximately 5 minutes per vessel. That’s 11.6 hours a day we’re saving with Ocean Insights. And time is money!”Charles Li, Sales Director China, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics
