The German Shipowner Association has called trusteddocks.com the Airbnb for shipyards. Of course we are honoured by that and we also hope that once we can tell a similar success story than Airbnb.
But what are the similarities between Airbnb and trusteddocks.com for now ?
1. shipyards can offer their services directly to shipmanagers without a middle man.
2. shipyards can receive request for dockingslots and docking tenders via web on 24/7 basis.
3. shipyards get reviews from clients and can show their expirience and happy customers.
What are the difference from trusteddocks.com to Airbnb
1. trusteddocks.com doesnt have a booking system – Contract and terms are negotiated individually
2. trusteddocks.com doesnt have a payment system – payment is also done between the parties directly
So, where are not a 100% Airbnb for shipyards yet – but in times of blockchain and cryptocurrencies this can be a way forward for the next steps in our development.
