Chart companies join forces
Thomas Gunn Navigation Services and Transas Marine have announced a new partnership in ECDIS supply and paper chart management which is said to bring benefits to customers of both organisations.
Thomas Gunn will now offer the Transas Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS as part of its total navigation solution, while Transas will offer Thomas Gunn’s paper chart management service – which includes Admiralty and International HO’s paper charts and paper publications – as a part of its ECDIS package.
According to Thomas Gunn, the partnership sees two players in the emerging ECDIS market teaming up to offer complete solutions for ECDIS implementation in accordance with the IMO carriage requirement.
“We are really pleased to be working with Transas,” says Thomas Gunn, founder and managing director of Thomas Gunn. “Our key priority has always been to offer our customers the best products with the best global service engineering in the industry. The advance of digital navigation has meant that we must continually evaluate our product offering – and of course good products demand good backup. Our relationship with Transas will ensure that we maintain our reputation for service excellence”.
Thomas Gunn customers will now benefit from the Transas service network, strategically spread worldwide through major ports.
“Transas Marine and Thomas Gunn share a common philosophy – we are both focused on building the best user experience with a truly worldwide service and solve advanced business needs,” states Peter Mantel, business development director, Transas Marine Limited. “By working together, we are taking our commitment to the next level by making it even easier for our customers to go through the ECDIS implementation phase, manage all information and get access to complete solutions in one place. We are very excited about this partnership that will bring a new level of business agility and usability to our systems.”
