Blume Global Launches Terminal VIP Solution with Fenix Marine Services to Support Busiest Ocean Container Port in Western Hemisphere
Blume Global, a leader in global logistics and digital supply chain solutions, has developed an innovative, expedited VIP platform for Fenix Marine Terminal customers in the Port of Los Angeles.
Fenix Marine Services is the marine terminal operator at Pier 300, one of the largest container terminals at the busiest container port in the Western Hemisphere. It operates on 292 acres, supporting more than 1.2 million annual lifts and an annual capacity of 2.9 million TEUs.
Together, Blume Global and FMS co-innovated a solution to increase expedited truck turn times and provide differentiated services for clientele within the Blume Global supply chain ecosystem. The unique expedited terminal service offering will be based on optimized terminal delivery algorithms for participating BCOs, NVOCCs and motor carriers that are connected to the Blume Global digital supply chain platform. With the implementation of the SavantX Hyper Optimized Nodal Efficiency (HONE) AI machine-learning product and seamless integration of FMS systems with Blume, innovative new solutions will be made available to participating BCOs, NVOCCs and motor carriers in phases. Blume Global integrates more than 25 years of historical data with data collected in real time from many sources, most recently from FMS.
Phase 1 of FMS’ VIP solutions will go live on March 10 and will include a suite of VIP Services to help customers precisely tailor the delivery of their cargo through an advanced appointment scheduling process, saving time and money. Three services will be offered: Fenix Express, Fenix Preferred and Fenix Priority. Descriptions of each service can be found on FMS’ website at https://www.fenixmarineservices.com/technology/ or Blume Global’s website at blumeglobal.com/vip-terminal-services/.
“Fenix Marine Services is investing heavily in terminal development and advanced technologies, including an artificial intelligence (machine learning and advanced forecasting) engine, to meet the emerging digitization needs of our customers and the increased throughput volumes forecasted at the nation’s largest gateway,” said Sean Pierce, president and CEO of FMS. “Together, we will leverage Blume Global’s industry leading technology and FMS’s terminal knowhow and customer relationships in order to deliver the next generation of innovative expedited terminal service capabilities that we believe will set a new standard across the industry.”
“We are pleased to partner with FMS to provide our customers with an expedited terminal service experience at one of the largest marine terminals in the country. This solution will provide unprecedented visibility, predictability and logistics execution capabilities to our customers and their participating partners,” said Pervinder Johar, CEO of Blume Global. “This translates into tangible value across the supply chain ecosystem. The new systems and data from FMS are extremely valuable, as they are correlated across the network and into all Blume Global solutions.”
Additional data sources for Blume Global include air, ocean, rail and motor carriers, airport, marine and rail terminals, ELD, AIS, air traffic and IoT sensor systems, weather alerts and feeds. The collected data remains anonymous and confidential. Blume Global takes the substantial insights from its worldwide network and correlates it with planned and unplanned event data analysis to drive visibility in the supply chain. Blume Global extends the data in its networks through valuable partnerships with companies like FMS.
