Finnish maritime software start-up Seaber.io reports that it has raised €1.5 million in new funding from Counterview Capital, Lifeline Ventures and Tesi (Finnish Industry Investment) to support further product development and bolster its sales and marketing activities.
Seaber’s cloud-based schedule planning, optimisation and communication system for bulk and break bulk shipping is used to assist charterers and shipowners in improving asset utilisation. The software incorporates AI support for fleet scheduling, and real-time data sharing to allow one click handover of relevant data between teams.
Seaber’s founders have been working on the technology since 2017, the company says, expanding the team over the last four years to prepare for further growth.
“Our vision is to be there at the front line supporting shipping towards a new phase where technology can be utilised to benefit everyone,” said Sebastian Sjöberg, founder and CEO of Seaber.io.
“During the past year we have developed our product jointly with customers who already achieve significant savings by using Seaber. We are thrilled by the shipping industry’s excitement to work with us on our mission to decarbonise shipping.”
