LONDON--(Marketwire - Oct 1, 2012) - Triple Point Technology, the leading global provider of cloud and on-premise Commodity Management software, announced today that ArcelorMittal has licensed Triple Point's shipping software to support its steel and mining operations.
ArcelorMittal is the world's leading steel and mining company, with 100 million tonnes of annual production capacity and a presence in more than 60 countries. It is the leader in all major global carbon steel markets, including automotive, construction, household appliances, and packaging. ArcelorMittal, with revenues of $94 billion, has a world class mining business with over 20 mines in operation and development.
ArcelorMittal required an integrated chartering and vessel operations solution with comprehensive freight risk management capabilities to mitigate market exposure for cargoes, freight forward agreements (FFAs), vessels, and bunkers.
