PETALING JAYA: Local offshore marine services specialist and logistics provider Satumarin Sdn Bhd has inked a deal with Singapore’s Marine Nexus Pte Ltd to offer its maritime expertise to Marine Nexus’s online shipping platform’s global clients.

According to a statement released by Satumarin, the company said teaming up with Marine Nexus was a strategic move to leverage on its (Marine Nexus) users, who are mainly vessel providers and procurers and connect to services offered by Satumarin.

“As we begin this journey, we hope that with the support and input from the industry, we can start to build a platform that leverages the power of the internet to help everyone, be it owners or brokers or buyers or charterers, as it would reduce their prospecting costs through this difficult times.

“With our platform, we will help make marketing more targeted, more efficient and more effective, helping shipping businesses become more sustainable into the future,” Marine Nexus chief executive officer Eric Chean said in the statement.
