BlueBoxAir joins OVN data sharing platform

Air cargo shipment tracking provider BlueBox Systems will join the Open Visibility Network (OVN) data sharing platform.

The Open Visibility Network connects shippers, logistics service providers, brokers and customers to share data and encourages data sharing among supply chain participants, allowing for increased visibility.

BlueBoxAir receives data from airlines and airports globally, enabling it to: receive minutely aircraft positions; track shipments’ estimated arrival times, chargeable weights, transhipment ports and other information; and generate shipment reports.

BlueBox Systems chief executive Martin Schulze said: “We are convinced that the digitisation of the logistics industry will only gain momentum if innovators work together and offer customers the best technological combinations.

“The Open Visibility Network is a central component in this strategy, as it brings the best players to the table according to the same principles. We are proud to be part of this group with our solution BlueBoxAir.”

Other companies that are members of OVN includie Tive, project44, FourKites, Everstream Analytics, TransVoyant, MarineTraffic, ParkourSC, WeatherOptics and FarEye.
