Xeneta Launches Two New Big Data Shipping Products Mending the Container Freight Industry

Modernizing the Shipping and Logistics Industry with Big-Data Platform

OSLO, Norway, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Xeneta, the leading price comparison platform for containerized freight transforming the shipping and logistics industry with big data analytics, today launched two new offerings, Xeneta Insight for SMBs and Xeneta Intelligence for large-volume shipping companies.

Developed due to popular demand from SMBs with yearly low-volume shipments, Xeneta Insight delivers accurate real-time contracted rates information on the current and historical market development of ocean freight rates for 20', 40' and 40' HC containers. It allows shippers/BCOs to benchmark their prices against aggregated market indexes, which are presented in a customizable dashboard offering a complete overview of rate levels compared to market averages. The Xeneta Insight data enables shippers/BCOs to find gaps in their freight rates and arms them with the facts they need to optimize their transport cost.

Xeneta Intelligence includes all the features and flexibility of Xeneta Insight, however, goes one step further with real-time comparable data analytics. Xeneta Intelligence lets the shipper/BCO accurately measure their price performance comparing their own rates and the market rates directly in the Xeneta platform. Shippers/BCOs can measure their own freight rates and their suppliers' vs market movements for multiple global port-port routes where averages over time (shippers and market rates), gain/loss view and percentage movements are represented via advanced, easy-to-use and customized data visuals.

"We have seen a major hole in the containerized sea freight market where procurement decisions have not been done based on facts. Our two new product offerings aim to change how shipping rates are traditionally negotiated providing low and high-volume shippers/BCOs the information they need to optimize the procurement business with aggregated error-proof data based on real-time worldwide freight rates," says Patrik Berglund, CEO, Xeneta.

Xeneta's aggregated big data platform has been able to alter how global trade is done. Its platform is bringing transparency to freight rates in the containerized trade business where it's empowering the shipping and logistics industry to make informed decisions and optimize their logistics procurement with advanced data visualization. To learn more and get a live demo of how Xeneta Insight and Xeneta Intelligence work and how they visualize shipping market intelligence, please visit www.xeneta.com/products.

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential.

Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. I...

However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
