Chevron Marine has extended its Marine Cloud Solutions with a suite of tools to support digitalisation in shipping
Chevron launched its Marine Cloud Solutions services, which include the order management platform OnePort, in 2019 and developed the platform under Chevron’s Business Technology Innovation initiative as part of an ongoing, long-term digitalisation investment program.
The extended digital tool suite is designed to integrate with customers’ processes for online vessel management.
E-commerce platform OnePort reduces order management time by eliminating unnecessary work from the process of buying lubricants.
The platform consolidates common supply-chain transactions such as product availability enquiries, order confirmations and delivery receipts to help customers gain access to information faster.
Real-time data on in-port information provides improved visibility of product availability, making it easier for customers to get what they need anywhere in the world. In a statement, Chevron said its customer service representatives would provide localised support and real-time enquiry handling to help manage deliveries.
Chevron marine digital enablement manager Steve Gormer said the launch of OnePort marked “a milestone” in the company’s digitalisation efforts adding “and this is just one of the ways we are leveraging technology to provide solutions-based support for our customers.”
Chevron said the extended digital platform “integrates data with human intelligence to enable customers to take decisions to help optimise vessel performance”.
Mr Gormer said “By integrating data sources, from order management to technical reports, we are providing intuitive tools that offer a total view of fleet operations that, ultimately, can help keep our customers’ costs to a minimum.”
Detailed asset data, including recommendations from marine technical specialists based on the analysis of used oil samples – where owners have used Chevron Marine’s Fast and Dot.Fast analysis services – create a full picture of the operating profile of the vessels in a fleet.
