OceanX, a unique non-exclusive global network of leading and independent seafreight experts was founded in Switzerland recently.
The network aims to build a community of seafreight specialists, providing transportation and logistics services in ocean freight, combining their individual local strength, industry expertise and vertical specialisation.
Founder & Director Ruben Huber says:
„Our industry is certainly not short of networks and they have been an integral catalyst of international transportation since long, as it remains a people business. However there are few that go beyond facilitation, truly building products with the communities they assemble or finding joint solutions for the challenges of our time.“
Ruben has an extensive 20 plus years experience in Europe, China and the Middle East, working with different container shipping lines, intermodal operators and leading global NVOCCs.
The OceanX network is taking a specialised approach to the different segments in seafreight by developing a multi-platform system to connect and empower the local expertise of FCL focused NVOCCs, booking agents and master loaders, LCL consolidators, project cargo & heavy lift specialists, cool chain logistics experts, dangerous goods & chemical logistics solution providers, as well as liner shipping agents and intermodal operators.
„The container shipping industry is in the midst of significant changes, that will impact the way business is being conducted, the roles of the different parties, how they operate, interact and add value will undoubtedly transition. OceanX will become the open platform to assemble great companies in our sector, driving innovation and providing its members with the tools to seize the opportunities ahead.“ Ruben further elaborated.
OceanX is establishing partnerships with key institutions across the industry and supported by several experienced industry veterans to achieve its objectives.
The network’s launch conference will be held in Dubai, U.A.E. on November 26th-29th 2018.
