The savings enjoyed by many DA-Desk users often completely offsets the cost of our service, making the additional benefits of our platform effectively free.
And yet these additional benefits of DA-Desk are consistently cited by our users as game changers for their core business, and a highly-valued source of competitive advantage in a dynamic and sometimes difficult market.
Our suite of services makes it possible for Operators to monitor other important aspects of a voyage whilst the administrative tasks are handled painstakingly by DA-Desk. And at no additional cost, DA-Desk users enjoy a high level of regulatory compliance, confidentiality and security.
Using the combined volume of our customer base, our Financial Services Department negotiates with banking providers for a package that allows our customers to pay in multiple currencies with highly competitive FX rates and minimal service charges.
Operators and Charterers can look up port costs for pre-fixture calculations based on a simple search of port, vessel or cargo. What they get is updated and cleansed data, built-in compliance tools, and a user-friendly interface.
Through an affiliate company, PortsDirect, users of the DA-Desk System have access to the discounted service rate agreements with port service providers across the globe.
These agreements can include towage, launch and pilotage and are negotiated on your behalf by PortsDirect.
