ATHENS, GREECE AND BOSTON, MA, USA – 10 MARCH 2021 – Bluepool, a dry bulk panamax operator and pool manager operating in Athens, Greece; and Veson Nautical, the leading provider of commercial maritime software and services; today announced Bluepool’s adoption of commercial freight and fleet management system, the Veson IMOS Platform (VIP).

As a newly established organization focusing initially on the panamax market, Bluepool is taking a unique approach to their operations.  Bluepool’s strategy is to leverage period charters while monitoring and hedging cash flows using freight derivatives. Their panamax pool, on the other hand, will commercially manage Bluepool’s chartered-in fleet alongside third-party owned vessels and will focus on the spot market.

When evaluating potential commercial solutions to support their business operations, Bluepool sought out an innovative partner that could streamline complex workflows while fulfilling their risk management and reporting needs. After careful analysis, Bluepool’s team of experienced executives decided on Veson Nautical.

This helps to minimize error and to enhance the execution and performance of our trades.”

By implementing streamlined digital processes, the organization can substantially reduce risks associated with the market, counterparties, cashflow and operations and continuously grow as a secure and reliable market player.

Commitment to Transparency

Another key element of Bluepool’s strategy for long term success is to provide clients and investors with accurate and timely transparency into their operations.
