ISS consequently developed a global liner husbandry solution, to offer the carriers
a scalable, cost efficient and standardized solution, which provides the necessary
agility to accommodate the ever changing market conditions.
At the core of the product is focus on vessel schedule integrity, through delivery
of QA, audited and accredited operational processes, which are provided by our professional
boarding and operational staff throughout our global network. Of equal importance
is the focus of cost savings, ranging from vetting and choosing the lowest cost
providers, to facilitating careful optimization of the vessels calls to ensure timely
berthing, so that bunker utilization can remain at a minimum.
Incorporated in the offering is our crew logistics and door to deck services, which
assures a full management of the whole vessel supply chain process. Uniquely integrated
in the scope also, is our sophisticated disbursement management process, which reduces
the number of invoices handled by the owner by up to 90%, as ISS resumes responsibility
for vendor payments, as well as matching invoices against the agreed baseline for
each port and vessel type.
