Dear Friend of ShipServ:

ShipServ is now launching a new service module: ShipServ Pages – the new online sourcing tool for the maritime industry which can be used free of charge for purchasing professionals and suppliers.

The new sourcing tool is an effort to bring trading partners together and compliments ShipServ’s e-commerce platform, TradeNet. Suppliers will be able to promote their products and services online in company listings and banner advertisements to the global community of marine purchasers. Currently, 7,000+ suppliers are listed in ShipServ Pages.

ShipServ continues to focus on optimizing supply chain COLLABORATION and bringing ship owners / managers and suppliers closer together. This focus area is also the theme for the TradeNet Conference 2006, taking place 10-11 May in Copenhagen.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Ostergaard
Founder and CEO
