Campbell Shipping to migrate to Fleet Xpress

Inmarsat reports that it has reached an agreement with ship management company Campbell Shipping, headquartered in Nassau, The Bahamas, to migrate its fleet of dry bulk carriers to the Fleet Xpress VSAT service.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal will involve migration from Inmarsat’s Ku-band XpressLink service to Fleet Xpress, which includes Ka-band VSAT and FleetBroadband as a back-up. The new service will be used to enhance the performance of the vessel operator’s management system, the Campbell Target Operating Model (C-TOM).

“This upgrade will mean our ships will benefit from faster connections to the internet, available through a single cost-effective package. It will enable us to accelerate improvements in other areas of vessel IT infrastructure, allowing more activities and functions to be supported and carried out on board. Fleet Xpress will help us to stay ahead of the game,” said Capt Anindya Dasgupta, VP human capital, Campbell Shipping.

“Our success is directly attributed to the company’s philosophy of building better lives for the people we employ. Although we are in the business of moving cargo, we never forget our commitment to our team members.”

“Today’s seafarers want to stay in touch with their families and remain connected to the rest of the world. Reliable connectivity is therefore crucial. Faster on-board internet and low-cost calling options will result in improved morale, contributing to productivity and the retention of talent in the company.”

Campbell Shipping also expects to use the additional bandwidth provided by its new service to facilitate closer monitoring of day-to-day vessel operations, which it hopes will translate into improved efficiency and subsequent cost savings.{/mprestriction}
