Martinos company Signal Maritime will set up an aframax pool in September that will lay the groundwork for a ‘virtual’ pool operating on a new digital, multi-tasking chartering platform its chief unveiled on Wednesday.

“This will help you focus on money-making opportunities while avoid all the boring stuff,” Signal head Ioannis Martinos said during a presentation held during Posidonia in front of hundreds of top players such as Petros Pappas, George Procopiou, Thanassis Martinos and Harry Vafias.

Signal Ocean Platform, the new digital product Martinos has created, will consolidate, process and order information from e-mails, broker reports as well as several channels of ship and port data using "narrow" artificial intelligence.
