COSCON, China's largest container shipping company, is relying on IBM software and services to help streamline its business processes, increase efficiency and enhance collaboration with its customers, partners and suppliers.

As a leader in the shipping and logistics services market, COSCON has 127 container vessels, and has shipped more than 320,000 containers to date.
