IMC Industrial Group Chooses Veson Nautical’s Veson IMOS Platform

Integrated Maritime & Industrial Solutions Provider Partners with Veson to Support Robust Business Operations

Singapore and Boston MA, USA – 31 August 2020  – Veson Nautical, the leading provider of commercial maritime software and services; and IMC Industrial Group, an integrated maritime and industrial solutions provider; today announced the selection of Veson’s cloud-based Veson IMOS Platform (VIP) as IMC Industrial Group’s end-to-end maritime solution.

IMC Industrial Group comprises Shipping, Logistics, Marine and Offshore Engineering, Shipyards and Ports businesses, offering a wide-ranging set of services across multiple supply chains. When evaluating potential maritime systems, the Group sought a solution that was as comprehensive as their businesses; one that would support their vision and strategy across various company verticals, to better meet their customer needs.

In their Dry bulk & Parceling vertical, IMC identified the need for timely insight and voyage performance analysis to improve fleet competitiveness, to actively grow their cargo-based businesses. For Liquid bulk, IMC needed a centralized workspace to react quickly to market conditions and gain valuable insights into business opportunities. For ILBU (Tugs/Barges, FLF, and MV), IMC sought to digitalize their voyage management process to provide high quality, reliable service that would drive potential growth in new markets.

Frederik Guttormsen, Senior Director, Shipping, IMC Industrial Group commented: “The Veson IMOS Platform was the clear choice for us. This future-fit solution will support and enable exponential growth for our core shipping businesses.  It will also provide analytics and business insight for timely and well-informed decision making, improve productivity, and standardize processes for greater efficiency as our competitive edge. We look forward to working collaboratively with Veson to take our IMC businesses to the next level.”

“The Veson team is thrilled to welcome IMC Industrial Group onboard,” stated Bradley Jee, Commercial Director, APJ at Veson Nautical. “The Group’s mission to be a future-fit organization highlights their ability to continuously evolve and provide dynamic solutions for their customers. This implementation of VIP is an exciting milestone in their commitment to innovation.”
