Seaber.io, the Finnish maritime technology company, has announced a cooperation with Norway-based, Wilson EuroCarriers.
Seaber’s innovative technology is anticipated to digitalise Wilson’s fleet scheduling in order to improve efficiency as well as to reduce costs and emissions.
Seaber has reported that its technological solution optimises fleet scheduling and maximises TCE (time charter equivalent), improving profitability and bringing down the environmental impact of shipping.
The technology, based on a modern tech stack, integrates seamlessly with existing software solutions such as ERPs and Voyage management systems.
Seaber is positioned to digitally transform the shipping industry with a technology solution designed for data-led decision support, according to the company.
The firm’s technology supports multi-parcel and multi-port voyages, In addition to single cargo voyages, where unnecessary ballast voyages and low utilisation rates are common.
A ballast voyage is where a ship is on a voyage with no cargo on board to get it in position for the next loading port or docking.
The web-based application is designed for both shipowners and cargo owners, allowing them to maximise efficiencies in schedule planning and communications, reported the company.
Stakeholders can collaborate in the shipping industry in real time, with each maintaining total control of the information being shared with Seaber’s technology.
Speaking on the partnership, Commercial Director at Wilson, Jostein Bjørgo, said: “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.”
“Seaber integrates with existing technologies used by Wilson and makes the planners’ work easier and more efficient,” said Sebastian Sjöberg, CEO and Co-founder of Seaber.
“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,” Sjöberg added.
The collaboration between Seaber and Wilson EuroCarriers comes a week after Sea-Intelligence reported that there has been a month-to-month 3.8 per cent decline in schedule reliability in January 2023, dropping to 52.6 per cent.
