RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2012) - Triple Point Technology, the leading global provider of cloud and on-premise Commodity Management software, announced today that Companhia de Navegação Norsul (Norsul) has licensed its shipping software to manage chartering and vessel operations.
Operating since 1963, Norsul is one of Brazil's leading private maritime commerce companies and possesses the country's largest privately owned fleet. Norsul specializes in transporting dry-bulk and neo-bulk cargoes over inland and ocean waterways. The Norsul fleet is capable of serving almost all transportation needs between South American countries for iron ore, bauxite, wheat, corn, soybeans, sugar, salt, and steel products.
Norsul chose Triple Point's next-generation shipping software solution, Chartering and VesselOps™, because it uniquely met Norsul's requirements for an integrated solution that could manage current needs related to vessel chartering and post-fixture activities, and future needs related to tug and barge operations. Also key to Norsul's selection was Triple Point's ability to provide local support via its Latin American headquarters in Brazil.
Triple Point Chartering and VesselOps provides a global view of vessel movements, market cargo availability, and existing cargo commitments. It enables the commercial maritime community to make more informed and proactive decisions, streamline day-to-day operations, and protect profits.
