Background

The inspiration for CARGO came from our long-term service to our industrial customers. Torvald Klaveness has delivered efficient and reliable transportation services to industrial cargo customers for decades, helping them reduce cost and risk related to both shipping and inventory.  

Since we started developing CARGO in 2015, we have had the privilege of working closely with leading industrial companies in the metal and mining, aluminium, agricultural and energy industries. Together with our customers we have identified significant value opportunities in digitizing and automating manual processes related to sourcing, shipping and inventory management, ultimately increasing supply chain transparency and collaboration.

Today, many industrial companies rely heavily on manual collection of information and data entry in spreadsheets to stay updated on their logistics, and collaboration between stakeholders is done via e-mail and phone. These manual processes have made it challenging to quickly realign plans to manage unexpected supply disruptions, often leading to costly events such as demurrage, higher freight cost and production downtime. 

Our mission is to provide our customers with a complete overview of their scheduled and ongoing cargo flow, directly linked to the Inventory situation, across all terminals and commodities – always updated with actionable information allowing them to take preventive action early to respond to unforeseen events and avoid costly knock-on effects.
