Alba Tankers, a Danish operator of chemical and oil tankers, is to work with Finnish maritime technology company Seaber.io and use its software to optimise its chartering and scheduling processes.
Alba Tankers’ fleet of 20 vessels mainly consists of ships below 20,000 DWT, trading petroleum products, chemicals and vegetable oils. The company will use the Seaber system to optimise its fleet TCE.
The software can also be used to estimate the impact of the EU ETS (Emissions Trading Scheme) on operations, which is coming into force in 2024.
“As any tanker company we aim to make sure we operate as environmentally friendly as possible,” said Håkan Kalmerlind, Head of Commercial Operations at Alba Tankers.
“With current and emerging emission regulations the whole planning process becomes more complex. With Seaber’s software our team can quickly make decisions by following KPIs and compare multiple scenarios in no time.”
Seaber’s web-based application is used to maximise efficiency in planning and scheduling, supporting multi-parcel and multi-port voyages. The technology integrates with existing third-party software systems and ERPs to allow data to be shared among different functions.
“One of Alba’s objectives is to use innovative technology to further improve efficiency and reduce emissions. This is what inspires the whole Seaber team to further develop our solution jointly with our customers,” said Sebastian Sjöberg, CEO and Co-founder of Seaber.
