OilFront provides innovative bunker procurement software for the shipping industry. It operates independently, with no financial connection to brokers, traders, physical suppliers or shipping companies. Leading shipping companies work with OilFront to increase operational efficiency, business integrity and prepare for IMO 2020 sulphur restrictions. OilFront powers collaboration across teams and improves business intelligence with reporting, analytics and benchmarking.
Technology can drive cost savings for shipping companies in 3 ways:
Your data is safe - OilFront is fully independent and will never resell your data. You can share your data in exchange for access to anonymised data of other companies who have chosen to opt in. This allows you to benchmark and see the most complete list of suppliers. If you prefer not to share data anonymously there is the option to opt out.
In a modern shipping company data must flow seamlessly between systems. OilFront has been built with integrations front of mind. There is a import and export API and we will work with you to connect these securely to voyage management, accounting and many other systems.
