We talk to shipping companies and ship managers every day about E-commerce and their single biggest complaint is that too many suppliers are too difficult to work with online.
More and more top shipping companies have laid down the law: get online or don’t expect to do business with us.
The good news: it’s incredibly easy to serve these important customers, win new business and dramatically cut your cost of sales. Just make sure you’re an approved supplier on ShipServ TradeNet, the industry’s trading platform for ship supplies.
Yes, this is blatantly promotional on our part but you can’t ignore the facts:
- As of Septemer 2009, over 140 top ship owner/managers and yards use TradeNet every day for their operational purchases
- These buyers manage over 4,700 ships spending over $1bn per annum – by far the largest buying community in the world!
- They do it because it saves time, money and effort
- If you’re TradeNet-ready, you’re more likely to be on the short list.
