Bringing better results, together: Shipnet and Seaber
Following a six-month pilot, Shipnet and Seaber are excited to announce a partnership aimed at bringing fleet optimisation to Shipnet’s commercial management solution.
Shipnet CEO Aden Hopkins said “In a shipping market that is dealing with significant uncertainties, one way to improve your position is to make best use of the assets you have. Seaber brings that capability to the users of our Commercial Management tools.” He goes on: “Collaboration is core to everything we do here, and working with an exciting, rapidly growing tech company like Seaber, to maximise the value we bring to customers is a great example of how we continually strive to connect, understand and improve the tools available to the industry”.
Sebastian Sjöberg, CEO of Seaber states: “This is a milestone for our business and comes after a year where we signed new customers and grew 10-fold in revenue. Working with Shipnet gives us the opportunity to engage further with owners and operators worldwide, and our pilot project shows that revenue gain of 5 to 10% are achievable with the solutions now at Shipnet users´ command”.
John Wills, Shipnet’s VP Product continues “The end goal is simple: give choice to our users. They can evaluate voyages on a net daily basis with Shipnet’s existing toolset, or maximise fleetwide utilisation using Seaber, all without sacrificing their overall management tool for commercial operations. The other impact of using a tool like Seaber is an increase in cargo moved per unit of carbon emitted, we view this aspect of optimisation as being much more important to our customers as time goes on and cargo owners become more sensitive to supply chain emissions management.”
Delivering excellence: The objective of this collaboration
The businesses’ joint goal is to provide the market with a top-tier toolset, and both believe strongly that they shouldn’t have to develop all of those tools themselves. Sebastian continues “Seaber and Shipnet make the perfect partnership –both have a clear vision for their products, and the value they can develop for their users”. VP Product at Seaber, Arto Viitanen adds “Seaber assists in planning the future fleet schedule and is perfectly complemented with Shipnet’s excellence in ongoing voyage management and invoicing”.
Shipnet’s approach to collaboration with other software providers in the industry is very much aligned with the way Seaber believes the maritime software landscape will move forward.
Both businesses say that the future for Shipping software providers is a highly connected, collaboration-led environment, where the experts in respective fields jointly provide better solutions by focusing on the things they do best.
