Shipnext enhances shipping industry education

The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS), a leading professional body for the maritime industry, and Shipnext, the digital SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) shipping platform and marketplace, are pleased to announce a significant collaboration aimed at enhancing education within the shipping industry for its students.

Shipnext offers a comprehensive suite of digital solutions including instant data and email processing, freight-matching, freight tendering and chartering, contract management, digital documentation flow, CRM and transportation management tools.

Under the terms of this new agreement, Shipnext will provide full access to its platform free of charge for one year to registered ICS Students, as well as Members (MICS) and Fellows (FICS) of the Institute.

Shipnext founder and CEO Alexander Varvarenko FICS says: ‘A Fellow of the Institute myself, I have fond memories of beginning my own journey in shipping with the ICS.

‘Fast forward to today and, as an innovator in the space, I feel it is important to support the international broker community in the transition to a smarter, more efficient way of doing business. This collaboration between the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers and Shipnext represents a significant step forward in equipping aspiring and established professionals in the shipping industry with the tools and knowledge they need to excel in their careers. It underscores the commitment of both organisations to foster innovation and facilitate growth within the maritime sector.’
