The Norwegian shipping line, disposing of a 130-big fleet, has entrusted the Finnish tech company to digitalise its vessel scheduling to drive efficiency, likewise, reduce costs & emissions.
"Our aim is to move cargo safely, on time, and maximise efficiency and sustainability of European sea transport. We were looking for software solutions that could support our mission and believe that Seaber is the best tool to help us further digitalise our operations. It is important for us to improve collaboration and the service we provide to our customers. This is a pioneer project and we expect to set a new standard for how the entire industry manages scheduling in the future," Jostein Bjørgo, Commercial Director at Wilson, underlined.
Seaber's tech stack solution is a web-based application designed for shipowners and cargo owners, allowing optimising schedule planning and real-time communications. Their software works with single cargo as well as multi-parcel and multi-port voyages to maximise time charter equivalent and utilisation rates while avoiding unnecessary ballast sailings.
Sebastian Sjöberg, CEO and Co-founder of Seaber, commented on the co-op, "Seaber integrates with existing technologies used by Wilson and makes the planners' work easier and more efficient. Replacing spreadsheets means less planning mistakes with improved data ergonomics, data integration and automation. This ultimately leads to reduced costs and emissions via better utilisation of the fleet."
He also underscored, "It is great to see Wilson taking this step, so they are better positioned when industry changes happen and new regulations emerge."
