GTMaritime’s VAR agreement with Marinesat

(Posted on 03/12/18)

GTMaritime has signed Marinesat as a value-added reseller to deliver its maritime-optimised communication solutions to vessels in China and other markets. The agreement with Marinesat is GTMaritime’s first partnership within the Chinese market.

GTMaritime provides a range of technology solutions to the maritime industry that serve to enable effective communications over satellite, including maritime-optimised products for email, anti-virus protection and data transfer.

In addition to providing IT solutions, GTMaritime also provides services that help ensure business operability 365 days a year, as well as keeping crew in touch with friends and family whilst at sea. This is backed up by a market-leading infrastructure and unrivalled 24-hour customer support, every day of the year.

Marinesat has already begun to provide GTMaritime’s products as part of its offering with the first vessels coming on board in Japan from October 2018. The roll-out will continue into the Chinese market, across Asia and further afield.

Marinesat is the largest broadband satellite communication provider in China and specialises in broadband access and value-added service; it currently provides VSAT services to 1,600 vessels in China alone.

"We are delighted to have Marinesat as our first partner in China,” says Robert Kenworthy, CEO GTMaritime. “GTMaritime has 20+ years’ experience in delivering maritime communication solutions and Marinesat is the ideal partner for us to work with to deploy our products into China and across other regions.”

"As a leading maritime satellite communications provider in China, it is constructive for both GTMaritime and Marinesat to reach this strategic cooperation,” says Josh Suo, Vice GM of Marinesat. “Marinesat is open and welcomes cooperation with outstanding companies like GTMaritime. Together we can provide more integrated maritime solutions for ship owners worldwide, thus realising our vision of the Intelligent Ocean Service Platform.”
