Thiruvananthapuram headquartered IBS Software will help mid-sized project delivery company ONEC manage the logistics operations for a large-scale LNG (liquified natural gas) project in Kitimat.
Kitimat is a district municipality in British Columbia, Canada, and home to the Haisla community members.
IBS has inked an indefinite-term software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract with ONEC Logistics Kitamaat, which is a partnership between the Haisla Nation and ONEC Logistics, to offer its integrated logistics management technology platform.
Called iLogistics on cloud, the platform provides stakeholders with deep insights and visibility into end-to-end logistics processes, improves demand forecast accuracy for charter travel, accommodation and ground transportation and optimises flight operations and accommodation capacity.
“ONEC Logistics, in partnership with the Haisla Nation, is pleased to be working with IBS Software who offers such a robust, integrated software solution for managing air, camp, and bussing that is imperative for the success of a project of this magnitude,” Jason MacDonald, president, ONEC Logistics said in a statement.
ONEC Logistics provides logistics support services for the movement of construction manpower for major industrial projects throughout British Columbia.
A part of Edmonton, Alberta-based ONEC Group, ONEC Logistics is engaged in providing clients with various project services including project and construction management, engineering and design, procurement and logistics, geomatics and survey, and fabrication and construction, among others.
The companies have jointly made a consortium-based business model to provide end-to-end logistics solutions for the new project, the statement said.
“Being a technology partner for a consortium-based logistics model delivers a strong message on our commitment towards reducing logistics’ operational cost,” Remasankar Sivasankaran Nair, VP of Energy and Resources Logistics, IBS Software, said.
Founded in 1997, IBS is a SaaS solutions provider to the travel industry, globally. It manages operations for customers in the aviation, tour and cruise, hospitality and energy and resource segments.
IBS, a Blackstone portfolio company, has 11 offices including the ones in the USA, Europe, Middle East, Australia, and Japan.
