Asia Maritime Pacific implements learning solutions from Seagull Maritime fleetwide.

Asia Maritime Pacific (AMP) is an Asia-based dry bulk shipping company, specializing in offering personalised solutions and reliable, innovative solutions to its customers. With its modern fleet of Handysize and minibulker vessels, specially designed and fitted to service AMP's trades, AMP is a trusted partner for dry bulk shipping needs.

AMP owns and controls a fleet of over 40 vessels, covering three sectors: Minibulker & MPP vessels of 6,600dwt up to 8,500dwt tweendeckers; small Handysize 18,900dwt - 28,000dwt, and larger Handysize of 32-36,000dwt. AMP's fleet is modern and standardized, with a focus on smart design to suit our diverse trades and fuel efficiency.

AMP has now signed a contract with Seagull Maritime to implement effective onboard training fleetwide using the latest e-learning and management solutions available. Carrying solid bulk cargoes involves serious risks, which must be managed carefully to safeguard the crew and the ship. Seagull Maritime offers a comprehensive library of e-learning modules targeted at bulk carriers with the main goal of increasing safety, reliability and operational efficiency.
