Harbor Lab is thrilled to unveil an exciting new chapter in its digitalisation journey as it joins forces with Great Eastern Shipping Co Ltd, India’s largest private sector shipping company. The collaboration marks the beginning of a promising partnership between two industry leaders committed to optimising port cost management.
Great Eastern Shipping, with its storied history and formidable presence in the shipping sector, has consistently demonstrated excellence in the transportation of crude oil, petroleum products, gas and dry bulk commodities. The company’s unwavering commitment to clients has earned it the prestigious ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 45001:2018 standard certifications by DNV.GL.
Great Eastern Shipping’s trust in Harbor Lab for its port call needs is a testament to the platform’s capabilities. The shipping company has chosen to utilise the full spectrum of Harbor Lab’s tools and solutions for all its commercial and husbandry port calls, signifying a commitment to streamline agency operations and improve operational efficiency.
The collaboration importantly represents a pioneering achievement for Harbor Lab, as for the first time, an end-to-end integration with both a Voyage Management System (Veson) and an Accounting System (SAP) will be launched. This integration represents a significant step toward creating an even more efficient, seamless, end-to-end port call management process from fixing, until the end of the voyage and settlement of all invoices and claims.
Harbor Lab and Great Eastern Shipping share a common mission of exceptional performance and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. Together, both parties look forward to harnessing the full potential of the partnership and exploring endless opportunities for growth.
