Vessel Schedule (Carrier)



CALISTA is a global supply chain platform that brings together the key physical and nonphysical – such as regulatory and financial – activities of logistics on a digital eco-system that serves the community of logistics players and stakeholders.

Taking advantage of advanced digital technologies, CALISTA aims to reduce inefficiencies for the global supply chain by interacting with systems and applications (existing and new) of various stakeholders. CALISTA will streamline processes, documents and data in the flow of goods within and across countries and regions. Stakeholders will benefit from the reduction of data duplication, automated handshakes across nodes, improved authenticity of data flow and access to accurate and up-to-date status visibility. Envisioned as a global common platform, CALISTA will enable manufacturers to have direct and increased visibility of their goods while on the move, and for Logistics Service Providers (“LSPs”) to collaborate to develop value-adding global supply chain solutions for 2 of 3 their customers. 

For example, with the greater visibility provided by CALISTA, manufacturers and their LSPs could partner port operators like PSA to access new port related asset-based and service-based solutions for greater productivity, and to explore new inter-modal transport corridors to achieve shorter transit times, better cost efficiencies and more optimized inventory management.



The Vessel Schedule module is for the Carriers to publish their vessel schedules in CALISTA.
