16 Grinrod ships to install BASS

Grindrod Shipping has signed a deal to implement the BASSnet Fleet Management System on 16 vessels.

Grindrod’s shipping division, headquartered in Singapore with a technical management team based in South Africa, will implement the BASS software on nine product and chemical tankers and an additional seven dry cargo vessels technically managed by the company’s third party managers.

The implementation project commenced in January of this year and included the use of various dashboard applications for functions including maintenance, procurement, human resource management, safety management and vetting, and management reporting.

In mid-February, a team from Grindrod Shipping visited BASS Software’s operational office in Kuala Lumpur, where the full transformation project to BASSnet kicked off with a series of discussions between the two parties.

“Our choice of BASSnet is logical, as we are very confident of BASS’s array of products, having diligently appraised their presentations and conducted research of our own,” said Quentin Foyle, general manager – marine, Grindrod Shipping.

“Furthermore, our dry bulk third party ship manager, Sandigan Shipping, also uses the BASS systems to technically manage their vessel operations efficiently.”

“Now we can streamline our maritime processes effectively.”
