NEWS & FEATURES FOR OUR SUPPLIER COMMUNITY
ShipServ signs CMA Ships
ShipServ is delighted to announce the signing of CMA Ships, the wholly owned fleet and crew management subsidiary of the CMA CGM group.
CMA Ships signed with ShipServ on the strength of its pedigree in the container market, and was attracted by new modules available on TradeNet that include e-invoicing and e-logistics.
E-Invoicing partnership fuels growth
As part of the continued drive to roll out its e-Invoicing solution, ShipServ has teamed up with Eye-share to allow shipowners and ship-managers, who use ShipServ TradeNet, the ability to receive, process and approve invoices and ultimately to save both time and money.
With the ShipServ e-Invoicing service, the invoice document from the supplier is handled just like any other supplier documentation through the ShipServ TradeNet platform and can now be pro-cessed directly into the Eye-share Invoice solution to speed up the workflow and approval process.
Changes to ShipServ Pages for both buyers and suppliers
Last month saw some small but significant tweaks to ShipServ Pages for both our buyer and supplier communities.
Suppliers who log-in to Pages will now see the addition of a new ‘Trade’ tab, this has been designed to make it easier for suppliers to see all their RFQs in one place via their RFQ Inbox.
Featured supplier: MariTeam Polska
This month our featured supplier is MariTeam Polska.
The company originally started life in 1992, as a one-man agency serving the Polish shipbuilding industry but has now become an established supplier to all of Poland’s shipyards and works with a number of leading shipowners.
MariTeam Polska continues to work with the world’s leading manufacturers of marine equipment, focusing on quality products and providing clients with professional solutions.
The company supplies a complete range of lighting equipment, explosion-proof equipment, shipboard cables, transformers, fire detection systems, anti-corrosion systems and ballast water treatment systems
From its Polish roots the company has now expanded its operations to cover other shipbuilding nations in Europe –including Russia, Ukraine and the Nordic countries.

Content marketing and the shipping industry
Content marketing was the buzzword of 2012 in marketing circles as more people started to take notice of the effect of sharing content across multiple platforms to attract and engage audiences.
Put simply, content marketing helps educate your customers with helpful and useful information relevant to their market without directly selling your product.
But is there a role for shipping companies and ship suppliers to use content marketing initiatives to drive customer engagement and ultimately sales?
