A service to manage sharing of tracking information of Cargo Carrying Units and their content

The LogisticsHub project started in April 2013, as a response to the challenges of logistic tracking in the oil and gas industry. LogisticsHub was launched for operation summer 2016.

LogisticsHub represents a concept for sharing tracking information for Cargo Carrying Units and equipment in the Norwegian offshore industry. The service supports operators, rig owners, supply bases, suppliers and transporters with tracking data through the logistics chain. Relevant tracking information will be captured along the transportation route and stored in the LogisticsHub. The stored information is available for use based on access principles. Anyone involved in a logistics operation may access information from the LogisticsHub to gain tracking information beyond information provided by company internal solutions. The stored tracking information in LogisticsHub is based on actual events, rather than expectations. The value  of exact information in logistics can never be over rated.
– We call it The value of  knowing.

The current version of LogisticsHub focus on Cargo Carrying Units. Subsequent versions will also track the equipment inside the container.

Increased quality and efficiency

By implementing LogisticsHub, we expect logistics in the oil and gas industry to be of an increased quality and to become up to 25 per cent more efficient. In addition, LogisticsHub will create new possibilities for information management with increased focus on HSE. This allows companies operating on the Norwegian Continental Shelf to operate more safely, efficiently and competitively.

How to use LogisticsHub

You can communicate with LogisticsHub through an API (Application Programming Interface). The API allows real-time communication and enables you to send and retrieve information about where a CCU (Cargo Carrying Unit) is right now, amongst other things.

The API enables updated information to be exported from and imported directly into your own systems. You decide how you want to take advantage of the LogisticsHub including which information to retrieve and how often to retrieve it.
