Finnish maritime technology company Seaber.io has announced a cooperation with Alba Tankers, a commercial operator of chemical and oil tankers in the area of North Europe-West Mediterranean.
Headquartered in Denmark, Alba’s chartering and commercial team is based in Gothenburg, Sweden. With the help of Seaber’s solution Alba Tankers will optimise chartering and scheduling processes leading to increased efficiency as well as reduced emissions.
Alba mainly focuses on vessels below 20,000 dwt, trading petroleum products, chemicals and vegetable oils with a fleet of 20 vessels. The company’s mission is to operate for safety, environment, quality and economy in a way that exceeds expectations of clients, employees and society.
Commercial operators like Alba Tankers use the Seaber solution for maximising fleet TCE by ‘supercharging’ chartering and scheduling functions and to estimate the impact of the EU ETS, which is coming into force starting in 2024.
Håkan Kalmerlind, Head of Commercial Operations Alba Tankers said: “As any tanker company we aim to make sure we operate as environmentally friendly as possible. 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 believes it is positioned to digitally transform the shipping industry and bring down its environmental impact. Both shipowners and charterers can benefit from Seaber’s web-based application allowing them to maximise efficiencies in planning and scheduling. In addition to single-cargo voyages, Seaber supports multi-parcel and multi-port voyages. The technology, based on a modern tech stack, integrates seamlessly with existing software solutions such as Voyage Management Systems and ERPs.
Sebastian Sjöberg, CEO and Co-founder of Seaber said: “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.”
