Good company for shipping

Ankeri believes that above all, it is people that will make energy savings in the merchant fleet possible

We are Ankeri

Ankeri was founded on 1st December 2016 by two long term friends with bold vision on the future of digitalization of the shipping industry. Since incorporation Ankeri has been moving at the fast pace of a newly formed startup.

Ankeri is founded on the principle of being more than just a normal for profit company. We are proud to actively participate in our society and try to contribute to make the world a better place. We want our products to help our customers to become better, reduce waste and promote good performance.

We are fascinated about shipping and our intentions are to be in the forefront of introducing innovative information technology to the shipping industry. For this we’ll provide service and technology based on current and future trends with focus on great user experience to help people achieve their goals.

We want Ankeri to be a good company. A good company to us is a good place to work, good supplier to customers, good customer to suppliers and healthy business for shareholders.

Ankeri – a good company for shipping

Are you with shipping background, designer, programmer, data scientist, investor or just generally curious person who shares our vision? If you are interested in helping us pushing the boundaries of today’s shipping, we would like to hear from you!
