Tug group Usda upgrades fleet management software
Usda operates tugs and barges to support Indonesian coastal transportation and harbour operations

Indonesian ship and tug operator and shipyard group Usda Seroja Jaya is deploying BASSnet software to improve maritime operations. Usda expects to use the software suite to support its fleet of 70 tugs and barges and shipyard operations.

Usda has chosen to implement the BASSnet maintenance, procurement, operations and financial modules. Its director Joseph Endi said the suite was chosen for its selection of services and modular structure. He added: “Modules covering different areas of operations can be added at any time. They are centrally integrated, ensuring process visibility and efficiency in supporting our operations across the organisation.”

The maintenance module will assist Usda in improving maintenance aspects across the fleet and manage its stock of spares. The procurement module should help shipmanagers respond to individual vessel needs.

The operations segment will enable Usda to plan and track voyage and port operations, maintain navigation and engine logs electronically and ensure its vessels have updated certificates for operations. Usda will also be able to track financial performance of the fleet using BASSnet.
