Safmarine expands e-business range
Shipping group follows up last year's iPhone and iPad app with a similar product for the Android operating system
South Africa-based shipping group Safmarine has launched a new application (app) for all mobile devices using the Android operating system, which will allow customers to access and download essential shipping information from these devices.
The launch of the Android app follows the release in April last year of a similar e-business app for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices.
"This new application once again demonstrates Safmarine;s leadership in providing innovative business solutions to the shipping industry," said Safmarine's global e-business manager Benoît Lebrun. "Android has become an increasingly popular platform for many of the mobile devices used by our customers and the launch of this new application will further improve our customers' access and experience with Safmarine by making it even easier for our customers to do business with us, no matter where they are."
Safmarine customers can download for free and use the app to look up sailing schedules, track containers or consignments, find contact details for Safmarine offices and receive Safmarine news updates.
