Ultratank implements Seaber system for scheduling optimisation

Chemical bulk operator Ultratank has agreed a deal to implement a new scheduling management application from Finnish maritime software developer Seaber.io, as part of a company initiative to reduce its emissions by 40% per cargo ton-mile by 2030 compared to 2008 levels.

Seaber says that in early testing its planning and schedule optimisation system was able to save Ultratank 3% in operating costs, which amounts to 7,500 tons of CO2 annually.

The web-based application is designed for both cargo owners and shipowners, allowing them to better plan, communicate and optimise cargo flows and fleet schedules, to improve asset utilisation and profitability by streamlining port calls.

“With supply being very tight, optimising our fleet is extremely relevant. Seaber will be a helpful tool to support our scheduling process, save bunkers and most importantly CO2 emissions. We are happy to partner up with Seaber to help us reach our environmental goals,” said Michel Polette, Chartering Manager WCA at Ultratank.
