"Fit for the Future"

Carl Büttner decided for the use of the Cloud Fleet Manager not only for saving time and reducing costs but especially for increasing the internal data quality. They are using the charting module of the CFM since July of this year. During the selection process, the Cloud Fleet Manager could especially convince with the continuous further development of the software, the use of most modern technologies as well as meeting the customer’s wishes.
With this decision, Carl Büttner remains true to his procedures of the last years and sets another new milestone on the way to improve the internal structures in terms of their “Fit for the Future”-programme and to simplify and accelerate processes with the use of modern technologies.

About Carl Büttner

The Carl Büttner GmbH & Co. KG, which is located in Bremen, is a well-known, long-standing shipping company with a long history. Since 1965, when the first coastal tanker “MT Hummel” was introduced into service, the company is numbered among the most important German tanker shipping companies. The actual foundation of the shipping company took place in Leer on 9th March 1856, when the 25-year-old Carl Diedrich Büttner founded the “Spedition und Schifffahrtsagentur Carl Büttner” on exactly that day. In the year 1892, the branch in Bremen was founded, which operates as a legal and economical independent company since then.

Carl Büttner became a well-known brand name during the last 45 years, as the number of vessels and size of the ships grew continuously. Highest safety, quality and environment standards and the endeavour to develop the safest tankers characterised the shipping company Carl Büttner. Already in 1995, the shipping company was accredited according to the standards of the ISO 9002, so that a certification according to the standards of the International Safety Management Code didn’t cause any problems in the year 1998. In the year 2013, the scrubber-technology was initiated to reduce the sulphur emission.
