Chandler (bada) Bing!

There’s no doubt the Internet has profoundly transformed the way people learn about and locate products. Today, buyers start their purchasing experience by looking on the Internet.

Google is by far the biggest search engine of them all and a great tool to boot. But sadly for maritime purchasers it can soak up an awful lot of time. Take for example searching for a chandler – just try typing “chandler” into Google and seeing what you get. Within seconds you’ll be illuminated, informed and inspired about everything to do with the character Chandler Bing from the hit US TV “Friends”. As entertaining as that is, its no use when you’ve got a vessel coming into port screaming for critical supplies. And you need to source a supplier of marine chandlery fast.
That’s where ShipServ steps in. We provide the world’s largest maritime suppliers search engine that lets you get down to business. Fast.

We have a tonne of information on suppliers of operational supplies, provisions, stores, spare parts and chandlery,  Unsurprisingly it’s been rapidly embraced by the marine chandlery industry -you can always expect marine chandlers to know a good thing when they see it. In fact over 40% of Premium Listings on Pages are chandlers. So next time you fancy a break from Mr. Bing, why not see how we can help with the buying and selling of marine chandlery.
