Company and innovation

OOCL understands that information technology is playing a vital role in the container transportation industry and has been a leader in the use and development of IT solutions for well over a decade.

OOCL was one of the first in the industry to offer interactive e-commerce applications in 1993. Subsequently, customers have been able to perform online rate inquiries, book and track cargo, check sailing schedules and process B/L from the OOCL website platform.

At the same time, OOCL also took the bold and innovative step to integrate the business processes of all OOCL offices, customers’ shipments and financial information into one system using “Object Technology”. Our vision was to develop and install new technology and to introduce an integrated system with proactive capabilities that would revolutionize customer service and optimize our business operations. Our final goal was to create a system that would satisfy all of our customers’ individual requirements.

OOCL’s Integrated Regional Information System, known as IRIS-2, was launched in 1999. IRIS-2 became more than just a software; it helped facilitate a new company culture. IRIS-2 has changed the way we think and the way we do business.
OOCL was a finalist for the coveted Smithsonian Institute Award for Innovation in 1999 for the groundbreaking achievements with IRIS-2. Today, we continue to reap the rewards of this remarkable system.

Capitalizing on our lead in IT for the transportation industry, OOCL launched the online interactive product My OOCL Center in March 2009. My OOCL Center was designed to offer OOCL customers advanced capabilities, help lower their business costs, save time and offer total transparency and maximum control in their supply chain.
