ISS showcases new cargo agency platform at Posidonia
Shipping and port agency Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) is showcasing its new cargo agency platform YourISS2 at Posidonia 2016.

ISS (stand 3.501) is continuing the role out of the new service and visitors to the show can take a look for themselves. Latest countries to be added to coverage for YourISS2 are Canada, Mexico, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and Mexico.

Core modules include a voyage module and operational and financial port call management, along with a real-time laytime calculator. A “whiteboard” module gives customers a single view of the entire operation and notifies the client instantly of any changes or new information.

The latest module to be released is a port intelligence element for vessel line-up information, port news, alerts and incidents,

“What we provide enhances business performance and knowledge for customers, partners and competitors. YourISS2 is not software sold separately, it is a part of our service,” commented ISS cio Bryan Philips.

Looking ahead he said: “What we’re now seeing is the start of a revolution in the industry, with greater connectivity across the supply chain and more demand for big data and IT systems that enable informed business decision-making. 

“We have already partnered with several innovative Silicon Valley-type companies entering the shipping vertical, which is a new phenomenon.”
