The tugboat company EQUIMAR is implementing SERTICA modules for maintenance, procurement and HSQE. With a fleet currently consisting og 5 tugboats operating from Puerto Progreso Yucatan in México, EQUIMAR expects the implementation of phase one to be complete by January 2020.

Palle Kaastrup from Logimatic is managing the project assisted by Pablo Grez, who is the local SERTICA representative in the LATAM region. Palle tells, “We are quite experienced with the tugboat segment and I am managing the project in cooperation with our local representative to give EQUIMAR the best possible service. This means that EQUIMAR is supported from their own time zone in Spanish and we are of course assisting from our headquarters in Denmark.”

José Salomón López Juárez, Operations Manager at EQUIMAR tells, “We have chosen the Danish supplier Logimatic because they are well known in the tug-boat business. They are known for their professional approach and focus on creating long-term relationships. We expect that SERTICA will improve our overall performance and ship management in our day-to-day business and in relation to external audits. Especially the module in SERTICA called Management Systems will assist us in ensuring high standards and stability.”

Hans Chr. Jensen, Head of Sales says, “We welcome EQUIMAR to our Logimatic family. We have been actively targeting Latin America inspired by the signing of the contracts with Ultranav, who has activities in several Latin American countries and is headquartered in Chile. The fact that we now land another customer in this region shows that our efforts have paid off, and we look forward to continue the adventure in Latin America.”

EQUIMAR is a proudly Mexican company with more than 25 years of experience, carrying out port towing, transport trailer, vessel agency and motor transport activities. Its main objective is to carefully guide the vessels to their berthing destination where loading and unloading will take place, thus guaranteeing the prevention of accidents, collisions with structures, collisions with land and other vessels.
