Clarksons-owned vessel fixture platform Sea/ has secured more software development power with its second acquisition in a month.

The UK-based operation has bought Polish maritime technology company Setapp, which has about 50 staff in Poznan.

The move comes after Sea/ agreed to acquire Sweden’s Chinsay in October, merging the freight contract management platform’s services into Sea/’s digital operations.

Sea/ chief executive Peter Schroder told TradeWinds the idea behind the Setapp deal is to build a centre of maritime technology excellence.
