Global Navigation Solutions (‘GNS’), is pleased to announce that Australian navigation house, the Chart & Map Shop, is to become the newest part of the GNS distribution network. The agreement with the Chart & Map Shop enables GNS to offer same day delivery of charts and publications to Fremantle and Western Australia and next day service to all other Australian ports, as part of the group’s Global Express Service.
The Chart & Map has printing facilities in Fremantle, Australia, which enables them to make available Admiralty charts on demand. This new arrangement also means that GNS customers regularly transiting to Australia can benefit from routine chart deliveries in Australian ports.
As a result of this agreement the Chart & Map Shop will also become re-seller of Voyager, as well as the GNS range of digital chart solutions, including the new ENC Bundles.
Hayley Jopson, Head of Marketing at GNS commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with the Chart & Map Shop to provide our customers with such an effective solution in Australia. Our objective of providing GNS service anywhere in the world took a big step forward today.”
Chris Boichel, co-owner of the Chart & Map Shop added: “This arrangement helps us extend the services we can provide to our customers as well as be part of the digital transformation of this industry”
