RightShip and Veson Nautical announce a new collaboration

Integration between the Veson IMOS Platform and RightShip to enable more timely, safe and environmentally sound commercial freight decisions

RightShip and Veson Nautical announce a new collaboration

The Veson IMOS Platform lets charterers make informed decisions about the type of vessel they would like to use for their cargo while allowing ship owners to share the capability of their fleets.

From 22 November 2022, subscribers to the integration will be able to access the following RightShip data as part of Veson's core chartering solution, VIP Chartering, as well as its pre-trade market analysis solution, VIP Trade Hub:

  • Safety Score
  • GHG Rating
  • Inspection status of a vessel

Within VIP Chartering, Veson clients subscribed to the integration can utilise the integration to create warnings and alerts for vessel ratings that do not fit the organisation's specific requirements. Charterers either receive a warning or are unable to fix voyages that are outside of rating parameters, helping to protect them from wasted time or errors and standardising the pre-fixture process.

Within VIP Trade Hub, Veson clients can set minimum GHG Rating and Safety Score parameters to search for a specific subset of vessels in a particular geographic location. With the ability to search and sort vessels by rating information, users can filter out vessels that don't fit their requirements and make better-informed, more environmentally conscious pre-fixture decisions.

Tarun Mehrotra, RightShip's Chief Strategy Officer, said: 

"The collaboration with Veson means our customers are able to access insights in a timely manner, as we enable the industry to chart a course towards a zero-harm future. We'll be more transparent with data than ever before, continuously improving the quality, as the need for accurate ESG transparency becomes ever more prevalent."

RightShip joins several other leading digital providers in the maritime space who have been strategically selected to seamlessly integrate with the Veson IMOS Platform as part of the Veson Partner Network.

Eric Christofferson, Chief Product Officer at Veson, said:

"RightShip provides a significant value add to our client community, enabling them to add vessel rating information produced by RightShip directly into their chartering decision-making process within the Veson IMOS Platform. This further delivers on our desire to allow users to reference data where and when they need it in their workflow."

Josh Luby, Group Product Manager at Veson said:

"Providing freight charterers with the necessary tools and data to efficiently assess the market and take action is core to VIP Trade Hub and chartering workflows. Having the RightShip GHG Rating, Safety Score and crew welfare information available to them at the very start of this process means they can quickly act on a market opportunity with the confidence that the selected vessel will meet their organisational standards."
