Q88.com has added a new FREE service for INTERTANKO members

One of the benefits offered to owners through the use of Q88.com is the opportunity to publish their Questionnaire 88 on the web site. This allows their customers and vendors (charterers, brokers, agents, etc.) to quickly retrieve the vessel information directly on the web site. Up to now, only fee-paying subscribers have had access to this feature. Starting today, all INTERTANKO members can register a free account on Q88.com so they can publish their Questionnaire 88 on the web site. Currently there are over 12,000 Questionnaire 88s downloaded each month from the web site.

Q88.com is primarily an internet-based tanker questionnaire generator. Creating vessel questionnaires is a daunting task that has to be completed quickly and accurately in the variety of constantly changing formats required by charterers and oil terminals in order to conclude a tanker fixture. Many parties need access to the details in order to ensure that ship specifications meet the requirements of the trade as well as the vetting criteria of the charterer, supplier and receiver. Until now, this process has been time-consuming and inaccurate. Q88.com allows tanker owners/managers to quickly and accurately fill in and distribute oil company and terminal questionnaires on-line. The information on a particular tanker is only entered once and is then re-used to generate over 330 different questionnaires.

Q88.com features include tracking of oil company approvals, weekly notification of expired approvals and certificates, monthly notification of new questionnaires. There are currently 330 questionnaires available, which are being used by over 170 tanker owners having an aggregate fleet of over 2,250 vessels.
