“How is technology transforming the maritime industry?”

When asked this question, the team of innovative leaders at Eagle Bulk Shipping reported that technology enables stronger connectivity, collaboration, and efficiency; which together propel sustainable growth and competitive advantage for maritime business.

Eagle Bulk has witnessed the effects of digital transformation on commercial maritime workflows firsthand, leveraging technology tools to modernize workflows and drive efficiency. Chartering team members operating out of different global offices work on the same estimate calculation together in real time; Operators make voyage decisions in context of real-time ETA updates and dynamic P&L breakdown; and Voyage accountants utilize real-time accrual and invoicing data to develop reporting dashboards without any manual data entry. At the heart of this operational efficiency is Eagle’s long-standing partnership with Veson Nautical.

“Veson has been a key part of our day to day operations for almost 10 years now. I’ve been involved with Veson at Eagle and at previous companies. I’ve also seen Veson’s competitors and I’ve worked with them in the past, and I’m quite confident to say that Veson is leaps and bounds compared to the competition,” says Marc Radulovic, Senior Operations Manager at Eagle Bulk. “It’s a platform that I spend anywhere from half of my day looking at and working in, and it’s integral to what I do on a day to day basis.”

A history of innovation

Eagle Bulk has a track record of prioritizing innovation in their business strategy. An Integrated Maritime Operations System (IMOS) user since 2010, Eagle Bulk completed a migration to Veson’s cloud-based Veson IMOS Platform (VIP) in 2018, optimizing workflows both within the company and with external integrations.

The company recognizes the impact digital tools have already had on the maritime industry, and intends to position itself not only to succeed, but to lead in an increasingly digital world. “Getting a ship from A to B, we’ve been doing that for hundreds and hundreds of years, so I don’t think there’s a whole lot that’s new there,” comments Radulovic, “but understanding how we can do it better and more efficiently is going to be the big take away for technology to assist operators like myself.”
