Purchasing

A properly functioning vessel is fitted with enough spare parts to minimize the risks of technical failures. As charterers have to rely on the employability of the vessel speed of action, a wide network of preferred suppliers and a good sense of planning are of the utmost importance. 

Shipping Company Groningen has established an efficient computerized purchasing and delivery procedure to facilitate the planning of orders and the punctual delivery of spare parts, equipment, stores and consumables. These tasks are supported by the GLSM Procurement Order management program which, in this way, combines preventive maintenance with spares and stores administration. Ordering items, required on board, has never been so easy as all vessels have immediate access to the existing spare parts catalogues within the system. By monitoring and evaluating our preferred suppliers we keep suppliers performance on high level.
