Maritime LogisticsTechnology Company Maritime Logistics Market Assessment (2016) – Conexbird a North European company that works in the field of industrial logistics retained Wave Point Consulting. The company has developed and patented technology that automates the surveillance of the cargo loading and unloading.  The service allows for analysis of every single parcel’s condition, parcel handling forces, parcel placement in the container (or transport unit) and the lashing. If it detects any changes that can harm the goods or container, the Cloud-based service notifies the employee handling the cargo. With 65% of cargo claims related to the container loading transport phase, shippers and insurance companies require better loss prevention methods. Especially, in highly competitive markets where customers’ top supply chain demand is for the product order to be complete, on time and damage free. The adoption and implementation of the firm’s technology generate data for improved decision making by beneficial cargo and container owners, cargo handling depots (both marine and inland), insurance companies, among other supply chain stakeholders.  Wave Point Consulting has help coach the entrepreneurs refine their business model to include a more global perspective of the maritime logistics industry and the customer value proposition that their products and technology will address.
