Finnish maritime technology company (Seaber) has partnered with chemical bulk operator Ultratank.

The company will use Seaber’s schedule planning software to improve efficiency in its operations.

Ultratank is a part of the large and diversified shipping group Ultranav, which, like Seaber, is a part of the Call to Action for shipping decarbonisation launched by the Global Maritime Forum.

“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 at Ultratank.

Seaber’s AI-assisted planning solution is a web-based application designed for both cargo owners and shipowners, allowing them to maximise efficiencies in planning and schedule optimisation and communications.

“Ultratank shares our aspirations of being an environmentally friendly company. What they can achieve with Seaber’s software solution is only a start. We are excited to be selected by Ultratank and are looking forward to a close cooperation with their team,” said Sebastian Sjöberg, CEO and co-founder of Seaber.

The Finnish firm states that its planning and scheduling solution saves Ultratank 3% in operating costs, which amounts to 7,500 tonnes of CO2 annually.

According to the company, the technology is the first solution targeted at increasing efficiencies for bulkers and tankers on a broad scale, making it uniquely positioned to reduce the sector’s environmental impact.

In March, Seaber was selected in a similar move by Norway-based Wilson EuroCarriers for the digitalisation of its fleet scheduling.
