HELSINKI, Finland (16th of October 2023) – Seaber.io, the Finnish maritime technology company, has announced a cooperation with Alba Tankers, who commercially operate chemical and oil tankers in the area of North Europe-West Mediterranean. Headquartered in Denmark, their chartering and commercial team is based in Gothenburg, Sweden. With the help of Seaber’s solution Alba Tankers will optimize chartering and scheduling processes leading to increased efficiency as well as reduced emissions.

Their mission is to operate the vessels with a passion for safety, environment, quality and economy exceeding the expectations of clients, employees and society.

Alba Tankers is thrilled to start using the Seaber solution: “As any tanker company we aim to make sure we operate as environmentally friendly as possible. With current and emerging emission regulations the whole planning process becomes more complex.
