Veson Nautical, the US-based maritime software developer delivering chartering, operations and accounting solutions for cargo transportation, announced that Motia Compagnia di Navigazione based in Venice, Italy has chosen Vesonís Integrated Maritime Operations System (IMOS).
Motia is the technical manager for the Netherlands-based Seaarland Shipping fleet, which implemented Vesonís IMOS last year.
IMOS has been managing all aspects of cargo transportation for Seaarlandís fleet, which includes 11 handymax product tankers, 3 panamax bulk carriers, 4 Aframax Tankers, and 3 Panamax tankers. The fleet also includes 23 chartered tankers ranging from 35,000 to 160,000 dwt. Seaarland is currently embarking on a new building program which will eventually include 5 Panamax and 4 Minicape Bulk carriers, 3 Suezmax, 2 Aframax, 1 Panamax and 2 Product Handymax Tankers. Motia also has a new building plan
which includes 2 Medium range and 2 handymax Product Tankers.
Most of the vessels are employed in pool partnerships with Handytankers and Aframax International.
Motia has installed IMOS at its Venice headquarters. The software is now up and running and they are testing IMOS OnBoard currently. OnBoard should be fully operational for all the vessels this summer.
IMOS allows Seaarland and Motia staff to share data and yet contribute their activity information to different databases. IMOS for Seaarland and Motia runs on one server each, which is accessed by different remote users since accounting for the two companies are handled by different software packages. Vesonís IMOS readily handles the various locales and effectively consolidates the dataódelivering information quickly to the ship and office personnel. In addition, management can access both systems quickly for reporting purposes. Vesonís sophisticated multi-layered security module ensures only password-protected users can access information, on a read-only basis as necessary.
