Major global container shipping company ONE (Ocean Network Express) has signed a deal to use thePARIS Enterprise transport optimisation software.

The market leading PARIS software ( offers an enterprise and API solution for optimising full load transport via truck, rail and barge by using advanced algorithms to reduce the number of empty miles. The solution is supplied by the PARIS Optimal Transport Planning division of Hutchison Ports. The division has extensive experience in delivering multi-modal optimisation applications for its clients which include some of the world’s largest ocean carriers.

Commenting on the new user, Clemence Cheng, Executive Director of Hutchison Ports, said “We are delighted that Ocean Network Express (ONE) has chosen to use PARIS Enterprise. Identifying and executing the optimal transport strategy is an increasingly complex challenge and we look forward to working with ONE to save costs and deliver greater efficiency for their customers.”

Andy Barker, General Manager, PARIS Optimal Transport Planning, added “The PARIS software has been developed and refined to provide shipping lines and logistics providers with an integrated system that can compare millions of possibilities by road, rail or water in seconds to identify the most-efficient, least-cost option for planning an entire region. And as circumstances change, the plan changes, PARIS constantly updates and refines the transport plan in real-time to ensure it retains the best transport plan if, for example, delivery and collection times change or if there are variations in equipment availability at inland depots.

“With four out of the top six largest container lines now using PARIS Enterprise it is the clear market-leader in its field. We are also making the PARIS optimiser available to a greater number of users through our recent launch of the PARIS API in the cloud, meaning the intelligent planning optimisation of PARIS can be connected to any Transport Management System (TMS) for planning an entire region.”

Robert Jan Brussaard, Head of Inland Operations & Procurement at ONE, added “PARIS was the only solution in the market that could fulfil all our optimisation requirements for the coming years across the Europe Africa region. We are really excited about introducing PARIS and the benefits it will bring to our organisation. The software will enable us to reduce our carbon footprint and deliver sustainable solutions for our customers as well as offering efficiency savings through reduced empty mileage.”
