Beltship signs up to ShipServ

Beltship Management Limited (BML) chooses TradeNet platform to refine and improve in-house purchasing processes

Monaco, 24th June, 2013. ShipServ, the leading marine and offshore e-marketplace, has built further on its trusted position among European shipmanagers with the signing of Beltship Management Limited to the TradeNet platform.

Beltship currently manages six bulk carrier vessels for mining giant Vale and is also a specialist in the transhipment and self-unloading of bulk cargoes and manages three self-discharging bulk carriers in a major transhipment project in Sierra Leone which it hopes  to increase in the near future .

The Monaco-based owner signed with ShipServ on the strength of its pedigree with shipmanagers, its strong supplier base and a need for further transparency in its ship supply process and will connect to ShipServ through its ABS NS5 software suite that it uses for purchasing and planned maintenance.

Lars Bratshaug, VP Sales EMEA for ShipServ said:

“We are delighted to welcome Beltship to the ShipServ community. To bring such a highly-respected manager onto TradeNet really demonstrates that ShipServ is the preferred partner for shipmanagers. We look forward to working with Beltship as they continue to grow in future.”

Marjolijn van Tiel, Purchasing Manager at Beltship, said:

“Beltship is already using the ABS NS5 software so it was a straightforward decision to use ShipServ to help us with our purchasing activity.”

Major Shipmanagement clients trading on ShipServ include, Anglo-Eastern Shipmanagement, , MMS Co Ltd, MK Shipmanagement, Bernard Schulte Shipmanagement (Deutschland), Goodwood Shipmanagement, OSM Shipmanagement and Wilhelmsen Shipmanagement.
