Sea/ and Windward Partner to Improve Efficiency During Pre-Fixture Negotiations
Sea/, the world’s first end-to-end digital shipping platform, has partnered with Windward (LON: WNWD), the Predictive Intelligence company applying AI to transform global maritime trade, to deliver a solution that allows customers to increase efficiency in pre-fixture negotiations by streamlining compliance and due diligence processes.
The partnership with Windward will allow Sea/’s customers to view a vessel’s risk score within the Sea/trade platform. Customers can now charter with confidence by easily ensuring that they only pursue vessels that meet their specific sanctions requirements, saving time by having all relevant information on vessel risk available in one platform. Windward’s risk scores are categorised based on deceptive shipping practises like Dark Activity, Identity Tampering, Loitering, and Meeting and Port Calls.
Sea/trade, the negotiation and fixture management tool, provides a compliant and collaborative deal capture for charterers, brokers and owners. Through a streamlined and controlled fixture management solution, Windward’s integrated API will bring increased efficiency and transparency to the platform. Customers can make informed chartering decisions with immediate “go or no go” recommendations, saving them time by pursuing only the vessels that fit their unique requirements.
Alex Gray, Head of Commercial Partnerships at Sea/ said: “The integration of Windward’s AI platform within Sea/trade will empower our clients with further data and insight to assist them in their chartering decisions. Collaborating with Windward is a really exciting step for Sea/ and we look forward to the efficiencies it will bring.”
