P&O Nedlloyd Changes Chart Supplier
Monday, November 03, 2003
P&O Nedlloyd has decided to further expand the relationship with chart agent Marine Press of Canada. All charts, publications and electronic charts for the fleet of over 40 container vessels will now be supplied by the new chart agent. P&O Nedlloyd already use the chart correction system Digitrace from Marine Press onboard all vessels.
“Digitrace is working very well onboard, so this move was natural for us. We will now achieve a much more streamlined process by getting both the physical product and the corrections/updates from one single source” confirms the P&O Nedlloyd Manager Nautical & Audits. “Digitrace and the digital lists of lights already save a lot of time for us and now we can add further benefits from the integrated supply.”
“We were looking for a reliable system for the chart supply and we are certain we will now receive exactly this from Marine Press of Canada. Our experiences during the implementation of Digitrace last year were very positive, both onboard our vessels and from an office administration perspective,” ends the P&O Nedlloyd Manager Nautical & Audits.
Marine Press of Canada is a chart agent for British Admiralty products and for many other hydrographic offices. “Our experience in shipping nautical charts & publications world-wide combined with our service level have been appreciated by P&O Nedlloyd and several other new customers the last year,” says Johan Sunnberg, Sales Manager of Marine Press. “We are proud that P&O Nedlloyd have chosen our company as the dedicated supplier of nautical products and will try hard to continuously provide new value added services.”
