Veson acquires Shipfix

Veson Nautical has announced its acquisition of Shipfix, a collaborative maritime data platform using AI to integrate market and operational intelligence.

The deal is Veson’s second acquisition this year, having confirmed plans to buy vessel valuation data provider VesselsValue in April and add the firm’s dataset and modelling capabilities to the Veson software portfolio.

Following this latest deal, Veson says it will continue to offer Shipfix’s existing range of maritime applications and will bring the full team over to the company. Shared clients will see Shipfix’s pre-fixture data capabilities combined with Veson’s existing workflows to produce an improved freight trading and operations system.

“A massive amount of data goes into pre-fixture decision-making,” said John Veson, Co-founder and CEO at Veson Nautical.

“We’re fortunate to have a growing integrated dataset that helps clients leverage contextual data across vessel specifications, ownership structures, commodities, trade flows, and tonnage flows, all in one place.”

“I am thrilled to officially welcome Shipfix’s expert team to Veson as we add their market-validated and accepted chartering and operations platform to our suite of solutions.”

These acquisition moves come after Veson received what it described as a “significant” equity investment in 2022 from Francisco Partners, a firm with more than $30 billion in assets under management that specialises in partnering with technology businesses.
