trusteddocks.com – the Airbnb for shipyards

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.
