This is the first service in the world that combined IJS’s AI-based Satellite Data for real-time container ship navigation information with AI-based trade data in HAKOVO uNIFIED CUSTOMS CLEARING Platform. The new product enables high visibility, provides arrival prediction of container ships, and simplifies customs clearance procedures. We have started supply chain visualization and tracking information service, helping customers to achieve delay prevention and import-related cost reduction.

This product utilizes the satellite information analysis service that IJS has cultivated in various service provision businesses using satellite information to provide real-time, highly accurate location information of container ships. It provides visualization and tracking information for overseas supply chains, by linking arrival prediction data obtained through analyzing the navigation delay information of HAKOVO and HAKOVO AI-based electronic customs clearance platform. Carrying out import customs clearance operations without being affected by delays in shipping schedules of container ships makes it possible to smoothly transport goods to their destinations and mitigate risks of port congestion, which has become a global problem.

This service enables users (Owner of goods, Exporter, Customs brokers, Forwarders/Trucking companies, importers, etc.) to accurately grasp the schedule for container ships to enter the port, thereby enabling customs clearance. And make it possible to carry out the preparations for necessary procedures within the specified period, and to transport goods without delay.

In particular, for the transportation of production materials, machine parts, construction materials, etc., and industries that require highly accurate procurement logistics and delivery management at factories and sites, it can optimize the schedule for shipping arrangement and deliver freight vehicles on land as planned. Moreover, possible to reduce unnecessary costs.

We’ve conducted POC – Proof of Concept (Awarded JETRO Asia Digital Transformation (ADX) Promotion Project) for this service in the Philippines since August 2021, confirming the preparation and creation of documents required for customs clearance, procedures, and applications can be performed without delay. This POC project was applied to import of construction materials for the Japanese ODA Davao Bypass construction project in the Philippines. In the future, in addition to the Philippines, we will expand the services to Southeast Asian countries.

HAKOVO AI and ML (Machine Learning) technology capabilities and new analytic algorithms further improve our industry-leading position and bring more insightful data to help our customers for better import customs experience and positive outcomes.

IJS and HAKOVO are now collaborating to bring together the strengths of both companies to innovate and transform the future supply chain. This collaboration provides an exciting opportunity to leverage IJS’s leading AIS data, and HAKOVO’s expertise in digital customs clearance products in customs platforms.
