Clarksons-owned digital fixture platform Sea/ has big plans following its takeover of Swedish freight contract management platform Chinsay.

And chief executive Peter Schroder said the backing of the UK-listed shipbroking giant is a big help.

“I came from Maersk Tankers and I’ve heard the argument, ‘oh, it’s Clarksons doing this and that’, and I say we have 459 other broking houses on the platform. It doesn’t seem to be a barrier that it’s Clarksons,” Schroder told TradeWinds.
