We are happy to announce that Chevron Shipping Services LLC, Seabulk Tankers, Seatrade Groningen B.V, Pan Continental Shipping Co. Ltd., Sandigan Shipping Services Inc., and AJ Ship Management GmbH have all signed up as users of ShipServ’s electronic Ship Supply Management (eSSM) solutions and will start trading gradually over Q4 2005 and early Q1 2006.
With these new TradeNet Members, the number of vessels connected to the e-commerce platform has grown to 1,400 – that is a 30% increase in four months!
Founder and CEO
Significant reduction in order cycle times at Meridian Marine Management Ltd.
UK-based ship manager, Meridian Marine Management Ltd. has seen a reduction in order cycle times when using ShipServ’s electronic Ship Supply Management solution as 50% of quotations received are now responded to within the day.
The elimination of manual retyping, faxing and e-mailing in the order process saves time which can be used for sourcing and strategic purchasing activities.
ShipServ provides business intelligence reports that are generated on the basis of all Meridian’s transactions on TradeNet and compared to TradeNet averages. Such reports facilitate process improvements by providing information on supplier response times, supplier response rates as well as supplier success rates (requests for quotes to purchase order ratio).
Meridian’s Liam Herbert, Purchasing and Systems Manager explains “superior reporting methods allow us to track supplier performance and response rates.”
