Shipamax

    We’re bringing the chartering process into the digital age. Software in shipping has been improving the way we work for decades. However, with ever-increasing functionality it’s become harder to quickly surface the intelligence you need. Daily, we see siloed software where teams are an after-thought, closed systems that guzzle budget for customisations and user experiences that should have been left in the 90s. After experiencing the day-to-day pains of chartering a vessel first hand, and hearing countless tales of excel files, google docs and thousands of emails we started to wonder. Given the on-demand realtime word that we live in, why are we still wasting our time tediously piecing together all our information from all of our in-house systems. We decided to take a new approach Shipamax is a simple software subscription, built for the team with an open API. We combine all your data sources and bring it to life for human-driven analysis. Our mission is to fix the process of buying and shipping physical bulk commodities around the world.
