ForestWave picks Seaber solution to up its MPP fleet efficiency
Seaber.io, the Finnish. maritime technology company, has partnered up with ForestWave Navigation, a Dutch multipurpose carrier, to increase the efficiency while reducing costs and emissions. Seaber will provide its chartering and schedule optimisation solution to ForestWave and the 35 vessels it manages in the 5,000 to 12,500 ton dwt range in multipurpose segment.
Seaber claims that both shipowners and cargo owners benefit from its web-based application allowing them to maximise efficiencies in planning and scheduling. Shipowners like ForestWave can use the Seaber solution for maximising fleet TCE by supercharging chartering and scheduling functions.
“Here at ForestWave our aim is to maximise the utilisation of our vessels. There are such a wide range of possibilities when it comes to planning your contract cargoes while considering potential market cargoes and also positioning your fleet optimally. Emerging emission regulations will make this process even more complex. Seaber’s software provides a visual user interface that automatically calculates relevant KPI’s with just a drag and drop move. This helps the users when they quickly need to make decisions and compare multiple scenarios in no time,” says Fred Diepeveen, Managing Director at ForestWave.
Seaber further noted it is uniquely positioned to digitally transform the shipping industry and bring down its environmental impact. In addition to single cargo voyages, Seaber supports multi-parcel and multi-port voyages, where unnecessary ballast voyages and low utilisation rates are common. The technology, based on a modern tech stack, integrates seamlessly with existing software solutions such as ERPs and Voyage management systems.
Sebastian Sjöberg, CEO and Co-founder of Seaber, adds, “One of ForestWave’s objectives is to use innovative technology to reduce costs and emissions. Seaber shares this goal by providing the industry with a solution that improves the utilisation of vessels, subsequently reducing costs and emissions.”
