Multiport Launches ShipTrak

March 14, 2003

Multiport has launched its internet-based system, ShipTrak. ShipTrak enables Multiport's members to offer their principals a centrally-controlled bespoke system for the management of shipping agents on a regional or global basis. The system also provides central accounting facilities for the management and funding of vessel disbursements. "The success of the system has already been shown through the recent award of a regional contract by a major oil company covering 1,700 vessel calls in addition to the management of 8,500 vessel calls already utilising this resource," says Peter Titchener, secretary-general of Multiport, who announced the launch at Multiport's 25th anniversary reception held in New York on March 12, 2003. Multiport, which has representatives in over 110 countries, believes that ShipTrak is the only system in the world offering system-to-system data transfer, releasing key principal personnel to be re-deployed to other tasks. For example, port times are immediately displayed on the principal's system. There is no keying in of information other than by the port agent. "The development of our systems is ongoing through an in-house team of software developers ensuring a prompt response to individual customer requirements," adds Titchener.
