Wednesday, November 09, 2011

The Norwegian company ‘Grieg Shipping Group’, has signed a contract with SpecTec Norway for the  supply of  AMOS  software.

 

Grieg Shipping Group belongs to the Grieg Group, one of the largest Management Service Companies of Scandinavia. Founded in 1884, The Grieg Group established a shipping branch in 1961, ‘Star Shipping’, which became Grieg Shipping Company in 2008. Today the company owns 26 OHGC (open-hatch general cargo vessels) fleet, and it has just taken delivery of 4 new state-of-the-art open hatch vessels; the company has a current development program consisting of up to ten  50,000 dwt open hatch ships with a new crane design, together with two Supramax vessels. The ships will be delivered from Hyundai Mipo in 2014. The contract is for the supply of AMOS Business Suite Maintenance & Purchase software for the 10 OHGC newbuilds and on both the new Supramax vessels.

 

The Maintenance and Purchase module is aimed to integrate maintenance work, costs management, stock control and requisition flow between the vessel and Headquarter. AMOS M&P allows users to see what has been spent on various maintenance activities or purchases, along with what is scheduled or budgeted for spending in the future. AMOS strength is in allowing a very strict cost control and analysis, which in such dire straits periods represents a real life saving for shipping companies. Grieg Shipping Group signed their first contract with SpecTec in 1994, and we are very pleased that they continue to choose AMOS for their future fleet.
