ChartWorld International acquires Vancouver-based Maritime Services

Chartworld apr 1

ChartWorld’s Oliver Schwarz and MSL’s Sumita and Shankar Roy are excited to start the collaboration and shape a new era for Maritime Services in the Americas.

Digital chart agent and ECDIS manufacturer ChartWorld has acquired Canadian company Maritime Services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Steven van de Schootbrugge, ChartWorld’s CEO, commented, “We have seen double-digit growth in the North American region in recent years due to our navigation solutions that cover everything from hardware as a service, SAAS, electronic charts, support and service. Our customers can ensure their ECDIS and digital navigation systems are automatically updated and are always compliant with shore-based oversight, for one all-in monthly fee.

“Now is the right time to strengthen our commitment and on-the-ground presence in this key region, and Vancouver is also the perfect location to strengthen our global support function. Expanding our presence to the Western seaboard time zone now allows us to provide fully staffed 24-hour client support when combined with our other global offices.

Shankar Roy, president at Maritime Services, said, “We are very excited about joining the ChartWorld Group, and the advantages this brings our clients. As part of ChartWorld we can provide our clients with innovative new products at exceptional value, providing dynamic hardware and software solutions to a wide range of navigational operations. ChartWorld also have market-leading ECDIS-leasing offers if required. Together we can now offer our clients an option to replace ECDIS, which has a minimal impact on cash flow. We will tie in flat fee for ENC’s and digital publications creating very attractive pricing bundles.{/mprestriction}
