For immediate release.
16 April 2010
A time saving and money making addition to database content offered by AXSMarine is due to go live this month and looks set to benefit charterers and brokers in ways that count.
AXS Dry Club subscribers are now able to view up-to-date chartering positions as part of their service for a small additional monthly subscription; companies who provide this information , need not be AXSDry subscribers, are able to benefit from additional marketing advantages by mailing their chartering positions free of charge to email@example.com. The newservice has already undergone extensive market-place testing over the past six months and is proving beneficial to users and AXSDry Club contributors.
AXSDry is a complete set of online tools and databases designed for the dry bulk shipping industry. Hundreds of operators, brokers, charterers and financial institutions save time and effort by pooling their key vessel, cargo and calculation information in one place. Instead of manually searching for information, AXSDry subscribers have a complete view of the dry bulk shipping market, without having to sort through thousands of e-mails, or manage multiple programs.
Stephen Fletcher, AXSMarine’s Commercial Director, says the ‘AXSDry Club’ will save clients hours of manpower. “The great benefit for users of the AXSDry system is that they no longer have to manually input the information available through the Club – instead it is there for them at the click of a button.
“This service can benefit everyone” he explains, “We currently update some 800 individual ship positions each week, which we estimate represents roughly 25% of the spot market, and we are working diligently over the next month to improve the weekly quantity available.”
The benefits for brokers are obvious. Some brokers registered with AXSDry Club have already reported having made fixtures as a result of enquiries generated by the service and Stephen Fletcher points out: “One additional fixture could justify your annual expenditure on our service.”
