TESMA, a network of professional ship management companies, has decided to expand the use of ShipServ TradeNet to all its Technical Competence Centres in Denmark, Singapore, Estonia and India.
TESMA Denmark has been working with ShipServ TradeNet since 2001. As an early endorser of e-commerce TESMA actively took part in the development of the first ShipServ TradeNet integrated solution with the ShipNet’s Advanced Purchasing System (SNAPS).
TESMA’s network and fleet continues to expand and is expected to surpass 100 vessels in full technical management during 2005.
TESMA is making their whole ship supply chain more efficient through a global centralisation of its purchasing platform featuring full synchronisation between ship and shore. Connectivity with suppliers is an important aspect of this strategy aimed at increasing purchasing effectiveness and keeping costs under control.
Paul Østergaard, CEO, ShipServ said:
“TESMA’s decision to expand its use of ShipServ TradeNet underlines our strong appeal to the ship management community who see this as a key way to reduce and control costs for their ship owner customers. We now have seven major ship managers on TradeNet.”
Per Sennicksen, Director Business Development, TESMA Holding said:
“We have tested and worked with ShipServ TradeNet since several years. We have found their latest developments (StartSupplier) to solve the last connectivity issue, between us as ship manager and our many suppliers, to our satisfaction. Logically we take the step of a global rollout and trust our suppliers will support this effort.”
