ForestWave to deploy Seaber scheduling optimisation system

ForestWave Navigation, a multipurpose carrier shipowner based in the Netherlands, is to automate a range of operational process through a new agreement with, a Finnish maritime technology company.

ForestWave commercially manages 35 vessels in the 5,000 to 12,500 dwt range in multipurpose shipping, and will deploy Seaber’s chartering and schedule optimisation system to increase efficiency.

“Here at ForestWave our aim is to maximise the utilisation of our vessels,” said Fred Diepeveen, Managing Director at ForestWave.

“There is such a wide range of possibilities when it comes to planning your contract cargoes while considering potential market cargoes and also positioning your fleet optimally. Emerging emission regulations will make this process even more complex.”

“Seaber’s software provides a visual user interface that automatically calculates relevant KPIs with just a drag-and-drop move. This helps the users when they quickly need to make decisions and compare multiple scenarios in no time.”
