FLINTER: A LEADING CARGO-SHIP OPERATOR

Flinter provides maritime services to captain-owners and private shipping companies. Service include supervision of new building projects, nautical and technical management, crewing, financing, and brokering purchases and sales. Flinter also acts as a broker between supply (industries) and demand (shipping companies). For this, they rely on the Flinter fleet or, if more appropriate, other ships in their extensive network.

This requires full transparency across all planning, which is precisely what the Quintiq solution offers. The vast, essential shipping process information flow around must be properly put in place as well as constantly accessible. The Logic Factory (TLF) Fleet Management System (FMS) supports many functions for these shipping companies including processes ranging from crew, voyage-and ship management to ISPS, ISM, maintenance, accounting, and more.

Planners at the crew department now have more control, allowing more detailed tuning of the planning. Practical benefits of the new system include improved work and off-duty cycles, which prevents employees from building up too many days off. The system helps planners match crew, regulations, freight specifications and ship requirements. Flinter can create a long-term plan, based on crew working periods, which results in less staff turnover.
