Clipper operates approximately 150 handysize, supramax and ultramax vessels, and has a successful track record in high-performance pool management. Clipper made the decision to move forward with the Veslink IMOS Platform, including workspaces for Claims Management, Bunker Management, Pool Management, and Trading & Risk Management, in order to modernize its business platforms.
Stated Anders Bruun, Head of Business Development, Clipper Group, “Clipper conducted a fact-driven selection process to find the optimal shipping system and technology partner. We found a match in Veson. They have a promising outlook as a strong technology partner and enable us to connect to a growing network with continuous development, especially as digitalization transforms the shipping industry.”
“Clipper’s attention to detail and the depth of their examination of each element of the Platform as well as the sales process was extraordinary,” said Sean Riley, COO at Veson Nautical. “The company was very clear about what it needed in order to make a decision.”
“As always, when implementing new IT platforms, we look for the optimal tools to improve efficiency in our daily business and create value for our clients and partners,” continued Clipper’s Bruun. “We also want fact-based decision making with timely access to relevant analytics. Veson can deliver this. And as we look to the future, we realize that digitalization is not in IT systems alone. It also has to be part of our strategy and implemented into our way of working. If utilized correctly, digital transformation can potentially bridge the gap between service providers and customers, together with creating value-producing opportunities. With the right technology partners like Veson Nautical in place, we feel confident to stay tuned with the development.”
