With its modern fleet of Handysize and minibulker vessels, specially designed and fitted to service AMP’s trades, AMP is a trusted partner for dry bulk shipping needs.

AMP owns and controls a significant fleet of over forty vessels, covering three sectors: Minibulker & MPP vessels of 6,600dwt up to 8,500dwt tweendeckers; small Handysize 18,900dwt – 28,000dwt, and larger Handysize of 32-36,000dwt. AMP’s fleet is modern and standardized, with a focus on smart design to suit our diverse trades and fuel efficiency. AMP’s business plan also ensures that their fleet will remain modern and continue to expand in the coming years.

AMP has now signed a contract with Seagull Maritime to implement effective onboard training fleetwide using the latest e-learning and management solutions available. Carrying solid bulk cargoes involves serious risks, which must be managed carefully to safeguard the crew and the ship. Seagull Maritime offers a comprehensive library of e-learning modules targeted at bulk carriers with the main goal of increasing safety, reliability and operational efficiency. At Seagull Maritime we know that training will improve business performance, profit and staff morale. We have developed cost-effective training solutions for the maritime industry for over twenty years, and we are constantly improving our training content and software systems for the benefit of our clients.

Mr. Jian Ping Chen, Technical Director of AMP Shanghai states that “Although ship operation cost will be increased a bit by implementing a new training system onboard, we strongly believe that the ship OPEX will decrease in the long run. The goal with implementing training from Seagull Maritime is to improve the basic and professional skills for our crew, making sure service onboard our vessels will further improve. By continuously developing standards for operating the vessels with respect to practical and good seamanship, we anticipate that the quality of our crew will be even better and thus minimizing the human error within shipboard operation. AMP also expect well trained crew will help to maintain our ship better than before and further decrease the safety risk/incident rate eventually decrease ship’s operation cost.”
