About us

Klaveness Digital AS was created on the back of Torvald Klaveness, a company that has provided efficient and dependable shipping services to industrial cargo customers worldwide for more than 75 years. Driven by our unwavering ambition to revolutionize the industry by utilising digital technology, Klaveness Digital was established in 2018 as a stand-alone entity within the group.

Having worked closely with leading industrial companies, we identified that many companies relied heavily on manual processes to manage maritime logistics. This often led to costly events such as demurrage, higher freight costs, substantial amounts tied up in working capital, and other costs associated with supply chain waste.

Our product CargoValue, is a testament to our commitment to assisting customers in significantly reducing costs and risks associated with both shipping and inventory management. We are incredibly proud of our heritage, and strive to exceed expectations as we continue to improve the nature of shipping.
