Canadian operator of dry bulk vessels Norvic Shipping has completed migration from Veson Nautical’s IMOSlive system to the cloud-based Veslink IMOS Platform (VIP).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Reportedly, Norvic Shipping made the switch to VIP in order to increase operational efficiency and reach by providing employees with 24/7 universal access to business systems and introducing dynamic cloud-based updates and features on a continuous basis.

Norvic currently manages over 650 voyages a year. With a cloud-based solution, Norvic plans to build upon this foundation with digital tools that streamline workflows.

“A critical element behind the expansion of our partnership with Veson, is that we see Veson continuing to invest in the development of the product and in maintaining a high service and support standard,” said Majbritt Jacobsen, head of business process & applications at Norvic. “The ability to drill down in our data and present the findings in an intuitive format is becoming increasingly important in driving our P&L focus. The Veslink IMOS Platform provides this ability.

“Since we are a medium-sized company making the switch to the Platform, we can be more agile and efficient in voyage management. This will provide us with a competitive edge,” added Ms Jacobsen.

“It is very exciting to see Norvic Shipping adopt the Veslink IMOS Platform as they continue to invest in digital strategies designed to support the company’s rapid growth,” stated Ignacio Labarthe, regional account manager at Veson Nautical. “I look forward to continued engagement with our partners at Norvic Shipping as we partner to bring innovative solutions to the forefront of the shipping industry.”

Norvic is planning to incorporate more Veson solutions into daily operations, beginning with implementation of Veson’s Trading & Risk Module to aid in building out its risk department. {/mprestriction}

We welcome both Consort Express Lines and Pacific Towing to our expanding customer community,” said Rune Lyngaas, Tero Marine’s CEO.
