One Maritime online ship-supply marketplace now up and running

The following is the text of a press release issued by One Maritime:
(LONDON) — Trials of a unique online catalogue which transforms the way ship owners, ship managers and ship suppliers select and order their onboard and onshore stores are proving a great success with more than 3,000 vessels already taking part.

One Maritime, the revolutionary new way to select and order ship stores from both onboard ship and ashore became available to the shipping industry from January 1st 2011. Already live trials of the pioneering new system by companies from 85 countries worldwide are indicating it will simplify stores sourcing and purchasing and save ship owners and managers, their superintendants and their crews both time and money.

Torben Brammer, One Maritime Co-Founder and CEO , says he is delighted that so many companies and vessels have joined the trial. “We are pleased to see the system going into use on this scale. We believe One Maritime represents the next step in the development of online platforms and we look forward to its use becoming widespread throughout the industry during the coming year.â€

Mr Brammer explained: â€Our technology products have allowed us to think of data sources and the use of data in a much different way than ever before. With its unique search engines and data migration technology, One Maritime has managed to build an online platform that gives its users access to a mix of data from multiple data sources at the same time. It changes the way that catalogues, for example, will be used by suppliers, manufacturers and purchasers in the future, resulting in efficiency and time saving benefits.“

The comprehensive new portal will provide access online or by CD to the shipping industry’s premier ship stores catalogues and many others besides, to secure the best quality and most efficiently-costed provisions, bonded stores, pantry and deck and engine stores worldwide.

And for the first time ever, purchasing managers and shipboard personnel can access the online ISSA Ship Stores Catalogue as well as a wide range of other main-line industry catalogues. With a programme of continual development and updates, One Maritime is set to stay ahead of the market as the most comprehensive maritime catalogue product database available.
