WHY SHIPSFOCUS?

The capital intensive maritime shipping industry drives businesses and people as globalisation and trade propel maritime transactions and number of ships to soar. Independent systems build up. Processes grow with expansions. Two major outcomes result:

1. Customers bear the brunt of cost in lack of aggregation, inefficiency and wastage from incohesive systems; while ship-owners and operators contend with high cost of dealing in over-capacity and ever-increasing GHG emissions.

2. front line people grapple with, and some quit, balancing repetitively unproductive but ‘necessary’ activities and value-adding domain-centric pursuits; and business owners hire more people and add more processes in response.

Things are kept going as the stakes are high. Industry self-help attempts often mean more stovepipe systems. Our vision for Aggregated Shipping is to change that.
