Fleet management solutions company BASS said it has achieved a recent deal in the Taiwanese shipping sector by securing its maiden contract in that bustling far eastern market.

Under the deal with Taiwan’s Simosa Shipping, the BASSnet Maintenance module will be implemented within the company.

BASS landed the contract following a tender exercise that proved its superiority in streamlining maritime operations through the innovative use of information technology.

“The advantages of BASS shipping software in optimizing ship management through automation are truly impressive,” said M. L. Sang, Executive Vice President of Simosa. “We expect to see stellar gains in efficiency in our fleet management with the deployment of the BASSnet Maintenance module.”

For Simosa, BASSnet Maintenance will create significant productivity improvement through the streamlining of work processes using the planned maintenance system’s labor-saving features to handle vessel components, spares list and job maintenance procedures.

The benefits will show up quickly on Simosa’s bottom line, which can be critical in the current choppy shipping environment.

For BASS, the new signing heralds stronger growth as Taiwan is one of the powerhouses of global shipping, and home to many maritime giants.

“Taiwan spells a huge potential for BASS, as shipping is a very important part of the country’s economy,” said Chris Long, BASS’ Regional Sales Manager. “We can expect Taiwanese shippers to take a keen interest in the efficiency gains that the company will enjoy with BASS’ Fleet Management Systems.”

Despite being a relatively new company, Simosa has an established pedigree through its sister company, Simosa Oil and Gas Co., Ltd.  This concern deals in asphalt, liquid carbon dioxide and other derivatives for export to China, South Korea, Vietnam, the Philippines and Malaysia, among other markets.

For BASS, the downturn in the shipping industry underlines the crucial importance of saving operating costs while improving efficiency through intelligent solutions.

According to BASS, this market logic has helped the company to grow its list of clients to include the likes of Singaporean giants Neptune Orient Lines, Hapag Lloyd, Stolt Tankers, “K” Line subsidiary’s Taiyo Nippon Kisen Co., Ltd, Sandigan Shipping of the Philippines, South Africa’s Grindrod Shipping and Malaysia’s Jasa Merin, to name a few.
