AXSMarine invests in Voyage Management System provider Nextvoyage


AXSMarine, a leading provider of SaaS (software as a service) shipping software and data for decision making in the chartering of dry bulk, Ttanker and container ships, has concluded a strategic investment in Voyage Management System (VMS) provider Nextvoyage.

Nextvoyage is a live and full-featured solution developed for the past four years and is in use with several companies in both Drybulk and Tanker markets. It is managed by individuals cumulating 25+ years of Maritime technology experience with a clear vision about the industry pain-points to solve.

AXSMarine’s investment in Nextvoyage is just the first step of collaboration between the two companies who will maintain independent operations but will work closely to deliver best-in-class tools and data to streamline and optimize multiple repetitive workflows.

“AXSMarine’s investment in Nextvoyage materializes a shared vision and values with Nextvoyage founder Mark Pith,” said Jacques Goudchaux, AXSMarine CEO. “This move appeared as a natural one for our organisations, and we are here to turn it into a valuable one for the industry. It is a logical step to help make the client’s life much easier.

“While AXSMarine and Nextvoyage will maintain separate operations, our eventual combined offering is aimed at providing a truly integrated alternative to multiple loosely-integrated solutions.”

“We share AXSMarine’s view on how to deliver value to the industry,” said Mark Pith, founder and CEO of Nextvoyage. “The current software and data services provided by AXSMarine are complementary to our software service, which makes AXSMarine a great match for us.

“We are excited about the partnership and the opportunities it will bring to our mutual clients. We are equally excited about the possibilities that collaborating with AXSMarine will bring to the market at large.”
