Pacific Carriers Limited, the global shipping and logistics subsidiary of Kuok (Singapore) Limited, has licensed Triple Point’s chartering and vessel operations software to manage supply chain cost and enterprise risk for its dry bulk commodities business.
Pacific Carriers Limited is a leading dry bulk operator with a growing fleet of product tankers, as well as offshore support vessels. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kuok (Singapore) Limited, one of South-East Asia’s largest commodity houses trading in scrap steel, agricultural commodities, fertilizers, and chemicals.
With continuing growth in global commodity supply chain operations, the ability for organizations to control the cost and risk of transporting freight, including freight rate volatility, is key to managing overall supply chain cost and enterprise risk. Triple Point’s chartering and vessel operations software enables organizations to comprehensively manage freight rate risk, chartering, and post-fix operations on an integrated platform.
“For companies exposed to raw material, energy, and commodity price volatility, the need for a sophisticated commodity management solution to manage the buying, selling, risk, storage, processing, and transportation processes has never been greater,” said Peter F. Armstrong, president and CEO, Triple Point. “We are honored to add a customer of Pacific Carrier’s stature to our growing client base.”
