BV links up with [bluester] online marketplace for maritime services

Bureau Veritas (BV) signed an agreement at this week’s SMM to cooperate with the [bluester] online marketplace for maritime support services, providing independent vendor qualification of [bluester] users and seamless integration of the platform with BV’s own digital applications.

The German-origin [bluester] platform is being integrated into BV digital apps VeriSTAR Info, My VeriSTAR, BV Approval Explorer and PSC Ready to provide added value and benefits to customers of the 11,000-plus ships classed by the French society.

“Partnering with [bluester] is a strategic decision,” commented Matthieu de Tugny, coo Marine & Offshore for BV (pictured left). “We believe that smart online applications focused on the enhancement of dedicated market processes in the maritime industry are an important step element of digitalisation in the maritime sector.”
