Dear Friend of ShipServ :
E-commerce in shipping continues to grow at an amazing pace. On ShipServ’s TradeNet platform alone, the number of monthly transactions between ship owners and suppliers has increased by 50% within the last five months!
More than 63,000 transactions were recorded in March and we expect 800,000 transactions – worth more than US$250 million – to be completed in 2005.
To serve the increasing interest in electronic Ship Supply Management (eSSM) solutions, ShipServ is expanding and looking for four new ShipMates in Sales, Business Development, IT Department and Client Relations.

TradeNet Conference 2005 : The Superefficient Company
The TradeNet Conference 2005 will take place Thursday and Friday 16-17 June at Radisson SAS Scandinavia Hotel in Copenhagen and is available to TradeNet Members only.
The programme has been expanded to two days and focuses on how to become a ‘SUPEREFFICIENT’ company. Participants will experience key industry speakers, dynamic and exciting workshops as well as exclusive networking possibilities.
The TradeNet Conference in June 2004 was an unqualified success with more than 80 participants from e.g. Anglo-Eastern Shipmanagement, CEC Shipmanagement A/S, Graig Ship Management Ltd., Hoegh Fleet Services AS, International Coatings, OSG Ltd., Man B&W, and Wartsila.
TradeNet Conference 2005 – programme and accommodation booking form
Last month saw an explosion in the number of transactions carried out via TradeNet – over 63,000 in a single month! Or put differently: a 53% increase in just two months!
For 2005, ShipServ estimates that the number of transactions on TradeNet will exceed 800,000 – representing more than US$250 million worth of ship supplies traded and making TradeNet by far the largest and fastest growing e-commerce platform for ship supplies.
More than 3,000 companies in 90 countries are using ShipServ to do electronically what they previously did on paper and by fax.
Some of these progressive and innovative ship owners / managers and suppliers have completely re-engineered their procurement/sales processes around e-business to become more effective and cost-efficient. Others are using e-business as a way to gradually rethink and adjust the way they do business ‘from the outside in’, i.e. with their customers and trading partners in mind.

We look forward to demonstrating our electronic Ship Supply Management (eSSM) solutions for ship owners and managers.
For suppliers we are introducing the revolutionary SmartSupplier – the next generation software for managing the trading relationship with your customers!
# A new order / quotation management interface – utilizes a “Microsoft Outlook-style” dashboard and Microsoft Smart-Client Technology that organizes your transactions and allows you to group/filter by various criteria.
# ShipServ’s Dynamic Content Manager – a catalogue management tool designed to set up supplier catalogues, contracts, vessel specific data, etc. The system is able to map to customer, OEM or third party part numbers – the system “learns” the association between the supplier and buyer part numbers, thereby reducing the cycle time for successive transactions.
# Reporting tools for measuring transaction volume.
# And much more…
