IBS Software will manage the logistics operations for a large-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) project of ONEC in the Kitimat British Columbia area of Canada after signing a long-term software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract with ONEC Logistics Kitamaat.
ONEC Logistics Kitamaat is a partnership between Haisla Nation and ONEC Logistics.
Together, IBS and ONEC established a consortium-based business model that provides end-to-end logistics solutions for the LNG project.
Under the strategic partnership, ONEC logistics also provides managed services on flight scheduling, as well as bookings powered by iLogistics on a Cloud-based platform.
The new business model of the consortium reinforces this LNG project’s objective of reducing the cost of logistics operations with enhanced safety and better customer service.
ONEC Logistics president Jason MacDonald said: “ONEC Logistics, in partnership with the Haisla Nation, are pleased to be working with IBS Software, who offers such a robust, integrated software solution for managing air, camp and bussing that is imperative for the success of a project of this magnitude.”
iLogistics-on-Cloud technology not only provides integrated logistics but also accommodates demand forecasting, capacity planning, integrated reservation management, as well as accommodation execution, all in one SaaS platform.
It enables automation and the inbuilt analytics engine equipped with configurable business parameters in the platform help improve business decision making.
IBS Software Energy & Resources Logistics vice-president Remasankar Sivasankaran Nair said: “Being a technology partner for a consortium-based logistics model delivers a strong message on our commitment towards reducing logistics’ operational cost.
“IBS has always been at the forefront to accelerate our customers’ digital transformation, unleash innovation and improve cost & operational efficiencies.”
