Maritime e-procurement platform launched

Moscord founder Freddy Ingemann Moscord founder Freddy Ingemann

Singapore-based Moscord has introduced a new procurement platform to connect buyers and suppliers in an online community, developed over the last year and a half.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Moscord, founded by ex-ShipServ VP of sales Freddy Ingemann, says it has already proven the concept with Singapore-based shipmanagers Berge Bulk and MMS, and that it has several other buyers working on implementation.

Contracts with suppliers including VIKING, RS Components, Gemu, Hoyer Motors, DESMI, Schneider Electric and MedSupply have also been signed, while deals with GAC, Steder Group and SG Shipping have been agreed to provide consolidated delivery of orders.

“Moscord represents a major evolutionary step in the maritime industry’s purchasing supply chain, bringing a new approach to a process that has been crying out for change,” said Mr Ingemann.

“By combining data management, contract pricing, fulfilment and logistics, Moscord can improve product quality and buyers can deal direct with suppliers, cutting costs and time that the middlemen in the market currently add to the process.”

Buyers do not pay to use Moscord, which can be integrated into vessel purchasing systems. All prices on the marketplace include last mile logistics services including delivery to the ships or buyers’ own hubs.

“As much as 20 per cent of final deliveries are returned because the wrong items are specified because of wrong or missing data. With Moscord, purchasers can ensure that the products they order are the ones they get, and that they are of the quality specified,” added Mr Ingemann.

“Our vision is to be a ‘Maritime Amazon’ a truly global, marketplace which brings the world’s maritime buyers and sellers together, accessible anywhere, anytime, with goods delivered directly to the vessel at the touch of a button. Our 24/7 operation centre ensures that all deliveries are tracked and managed carefully. Quality in our deliveries is key in our concept.”{/mprestriction}
