Maritime Innovator: SHIPNEXT
Our customers constantly amaze us with their innovative approach to industry solutions and out-of-the-box ideas to build a better planet.
This month’s Innovative Customer Spotlight is on SHIPNEXT, a leading digital shipping marketplace that aims to make the shipping industry more efficient and streamlined.
Alexander and his team, driven by their passion for the transportation industry and a desire to innovate, have developed a platform that effectively addresses the most pressing challenges faced by shipping brokers, companies, carriers, and traders.
The journey to SHIPNEXT
Alexander has always had a deep connection to the shipping industry. He comes from a family with a long history in transportation, and he saw the need for a faster, better, and more efficient solution to carry cargo worldwide. In 2016, he founded SHIPNEXT, with the mission to revolutionize the shipping industry by using cutting-edge technology to streamline the process of matching cargo with ships.
SHIPNEXT has patented the process of processing e-mails and shipping data with the aim of building a digital shipping marketplace that saves time and increases efficiency for all parties involved. Today, the company is the main freight-matching platform covering dry-bulk, wet-bulk, breakbulk, oversized, and containerized cargo.
By leveraging satellite and AIS data from Spire Maritime, Shipnext gained real-time insights into fleet operations and recognized the importance of a wider range of data. The collaboration between Shipnext and Spire has resulted in real-time visibility around ports, including congestion management solutions, and a single fleet database to eliminate misinformation. Additionally, the partnership is promoting Emission Indexes for a sustainable industry.
Shipnext’s early adoption of Spire Maritime’s AIS data has put them ahead of the competition, and Spire’s willingness to collaborate and interoperate has been a key factor in their long-term success in the transportation industry.
