To us, purchasing is more than a process of acquiring supplies. It is procuring the best quality goods and services at the most economical price. Through tapping on our global purchasing experience, and our network of highly reliable suppliers, we actively negotiate for favorable frame agreements and consolidate volume purchase. As a result, we are not only able to secure attractive pricing on a range of supplies, including spare parts, lubricating oil, paints and provisions, we are also able to adopt a holistic perspective to inventory control – maximizing savings for our principals. Furthermore, our computerized purchasing system, fully integrated with our Planned Maintenance System on board vessels, assures that incidents of over-stocking are minimized.
