Hapag-Lloyd to standardise software set-up on 70 vessels

Container shipping company Hapag-Lloyd is to undertake a new software standardisation project on more than 70 of its largest vessels, with the aim of providing a common technical fleet management system for its fleets both in Hamburg and Dubai.

The company has chosen to implement the SERTICA pacakge from Denmark-based Logimatic on the ships, replacing a range of different applications with a single common software platform.

The new set-up will provide one single data entry point for the crew onboard the vessels, which Hapag-Lloyd expects will lead to a decrease in duplicate entries and an increase in transparency for spare parts and materials ordered by the ships.

“With a smooth transition to a shared fleet management software platform across two fleets, we expect to increase efficiency and reduce costs. We aim to achieve a higher degree of transparency, lean approval processes and a fast order process,” said Jan Rüsch, Business Project Manager at Hapag-Lloyd.

“We have chosen a user-friendly and flexible system with a nice reporting functionality. Our investment is, however, larger than just a new software as we plan to optimise our internal processes. To achieve this, we need support from a partner who possesses the necessary maritime knowledge – this partner is Logimatic.”
