Maran Tankers to implement Q88 software

Maran Tankers Management has selected Q88’s Cloud-based voyage management system, Q88VMS, to manage the company’s chartering and commercial operations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Q88VMS’ integrated approach to managing the voyage chain was a huge factor for our company, which encourages team work, open dialogue and sharing of information,” said Georgios Asteros, operations director of Maran Tankers Management.

“Having chartering, operations and post fixture in various offices across the globe, we needed a system that not only enables quick and accurate voyage calculations, fixtures, operations and reporting but also works across devices and locations. Q88 has delivered on their promise, getting us up and running in days.”

Q88VMS is a web-based platform for managing voyage related information which the company says has doubled its user base over the last nine months, mainly in Europe.

“We are very excited about Maran Tankers Management joining the Q88VMS community. Greece is a crucial market to us, and having a company like Maran Tankers, with such great history and a reputation of excellence, onboard is huge. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Maran Tankers and further serving the Greek shipping community,” said Fritz Heidnereich, president of Q88 LLC.

In related news, Q88 has also announced the launch of a new Position List module on its system, a collaborative position platform to offer tanker brokers a view of the global tanker supply.

The module features distances provided by AtoBviaC and satellite AIS data from, along with Detailed Search and Saved Search functionality, an Intake Calculator, and sharing capabilities with other tanker brokers belonging to the community.

The system can be accessed through a web browser, and is available as a mobile app for Android and iOS.

“After receiving requests for years from existing clients, we decided that now was the perfect time for us to build our Position List module,” said Mr Heidenreich.

“With 80 per cent of the world tanker fleet on we always felt this was a natural next step for us, and the technology available today has allowed for us to build an incredibly fast and user friendly system that could not have been built in years past.”

“The result is a system that tankers brokers are going to love using, in the office or wherever they might find themselves needing the most up-to-date market data. We’re extremely excited about the impact this system is going to have on a broker’s life.”{/mprestriction}
