Interaction between shipowners and charterers - webinar recording

Don't worry if you missed it. You can still watch our webinar recording. Last Thursday Seaber jointly with Digital Ship held a webinar about "Interaction between shipowners and charterers: streamlining processes and removing administrative burdens, through digitalisation". Speakers, along with Seaber's CEO Sebastian Sjöberg,  included Finnlines's Juuso Alanen and former master mariner Melvin Mathews.

What was it all about

Charterers are asking for more and more information from the shipowner, so they can plan ahead and ensure environmental performance, have more input into routing and speed decisions, and optimise utilisation of vessels. The shipping industry and the crew are struggling to keep up using spreadsheets and e-mails.

In this webinar we had a look at how the situation can be improved, also taking into account the challenges of people working from home.

We reviewed what should be taken into account when planning a digital implementation project, the pain points shipowners have, and how the flow of information can be brought out of silos. We also discussed how a sophisticated maritime software removes administrative burdens, while supporting industry experts to make better decisions.
