Maran Tankers Chooses Q88VMS
Greek oil tanker shipping company Maran Tankers Management has selected a cloud-based voyage management system to manage its chartering and commercial operations.
Q88VMS, the latest product in Q88 LLC’s portfolio, is a web-based platform for managing all voyage related information. It will allow Maran Tankers Management to operate its growing fleet seamlessly across its various offices without disruption or delay, the developer said.
“Q88VMS’ integrated approach to managing the voyage chain was a huge factor for our company, which encourages team work, open dialogue and sharing of information,” said Georgios Asteros, Operations Director of Maran Tankers Management. “Having chartering, operations and post fixture in various offices across the globe, we needed a system that not only enables quick and accurate voyage calculations, fixtures, operations and reporting but also works across devices and locations.”
According to Q88 LLC, the user base for Q88VMS has more than doubled over the past nine months, with the majority of growth concentrated in Europe.
Fritz Heidnereich, President of Q88 LLC, said, “Greece is a crucial market to us, and having a company like Maran Tankers, with such great history and a reputation of excellence, onboard is huge.”
