Turkish Manta Shipping connects vessels with Marlink

Luxembourg, 2 December 2020. – The Turkish shipping services provider Manta Shipping has selected the Norwegian Marlink to provide Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress service on eight of its vessels.

The agreement was signed through Marlink’s local partner Ozsay Satellite to support Manta Shipping’s drive towards digitalised shipping operations and increased connectivity for crew, Marlink said.

Manta Shipping provides a complete range of shipping services and operates in the highly competitive bulk carrier market, the firm said.

“By migrating from L-Band to Fleet Xpress provided by Marlink, Manta Shipping will benefit from high throughput and global coverage, keeping crew and operations connected wherever its vessels sail and maintaining the highest standards of safety and compliance.”
