In May 2018, BSM demonstrated its commitment to the Greek shipping industry by hosting a hospitality event on ‘The future of shipmanagement’ in Athens, Greece.
The evening, co-organised with MariApps Marine Solutions and hosted by BSM Greece, had over 120 distinguished figures from the maritime industry in attendance; representatives from the local government, customers, business partners, members from industry associations and BSM’s key management.
The welcome address was presented by Ian Beveridge, Schulte Group CEO, and Christoph Schulte, Schulte Group shareholder representative.
An informative event ensued with presenters covering key topics such as digitalisation trends in the shipping industry, an area in which the Schulte Group is investing significantly, and an overview of the new Athens-based BSM Fleet Performance Centre (FPC).
Speakersincluded Sankar Ragavan, CEO of MariApps Marine Solutions, who presented the importance of effective data management and Frank Paleokrassas, BSM Manager – Fleet Performance, who outlined how the FPC will further enhance the ship manager’s ability to monitor vessel performance in real time, aiming for maximum energy and operational efficiency.
The event was a precursor to the bi-annual Posidonia exhibition in Athens, a gathering of ship owners and the global maritime community, at which BSM exhibited.
