Venture capitalist Yariv Zghoul has sworn off shipowning, but he is closing in on a digital fleet of 1,200 ships as a service provider through software company JiBe ERP.

About half of that is the managed and crewed fleet of Anglo-Eastern Shipmanagement, which the former shipowner's company has just begun putting online. Zghoul hopes to win the fleets of two more major third-party managers soon.
