In a first for the industry, Global Marketing Systems (GMS), the world’s largest cash buyer of ships, has launched a unique source for market intelligence in the vessel recycling industry, in the form of a new, easy to use, mobile application.
The new application delivers instant information on vessel prices at key recycling destinations, gives ship owners access to a confidential service that will value a vessel and delivers GMS Weekly – the subscription-only inside track on recycling industry news. It also highlights delivery tides, and provides useful information for when trading across continents.
“We are delighted to launch this brand new concept into the marketplace,” said Dr Anil Sharma, Founder and CEO of GMS.
“Since establishing GMS, we have worked to modernise and promote the ship recycling industry, challenging old customs and looking for new ways to do business. With exclusive local representation in all five of the major recycling markets of the world we have remained close to ship owners, to brokers and to ship recyclers; ensuring a continuing and unique insight into both the needs of our customers and into developments within their markets.
“This new resource has been developed as a result of that insight, providing industry information and confidential access to our expertise – all at the touch of a button,” added Dr Sharma.
Targeted at ship owners, brokers and the ship recycling industry as a whole, the application is available to both Apple and Android users, and can be obtained from the respective app stores.
