Thomas Gunn Navigation Services and Transas Marine Ltd. announced today a new partnership which will bring significant benefits to customers of both organisations.
Thomas Gunn will now offer Transas Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS as part of its total navigation solution, while Transas will offer Thomas Gunn’s paper chart management service, which includes Admiralty and International HO’s paper charts and paper publications, as a part of its ECDIS package.
This partnership sees two industry experts in the emerging ECDIS market teaming up to offer complete solutions for ECDIS implementation in accordance with the IMO Carriage Requirement. That will not only support both Thomas Gunn and Transas customers throughout the whole life cycle of purchased products, but will also service those needs.
“We are really pleased to be working with Transas,” said Thomas Gunn, founder and managing director of Thomas Gunn. “Our key priority has always been to offer our customers the best products with the best global service engineering in the industry. The advance of digital navigation has meant that we must continually evaluate our product offering – and, of course, good products demand good back-up. Our relationship with Transas will ensure that we maintain our reputation for service excellence.”
When it comes to ECDIS implementation, in addition to Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS, Thomas Gunn customers will now benefit from a service network strategically spread worldwide through all major ports.
