What is Closelink?

Closelink is a cloud-based purchasing platform for Marine Lubricants that allows buyer and seller to work on the same page. RfQs and orders are transmitted, discussed and confirmed online. It’s a perfect tool to reduce workload, to keep costs low and easy to integrate into your current processes.

Why Marine Lubricants?
Because it is something, every motorized vessel requires. Because it is significant when it comes to savings.
But obviously, this is just a starting point.

What Clients say that tested Closelink

Closelink demonstrates how IT infrastructure in shipping will develop in the near future. In comparison to other industries, we still have some homework to do.

Owner, Shipping Company

The approach of cloud-based software is tailor made for shipping, giving its moving assets. Closelink successfully demonstrates its possibilities. I am looking forward to seeing what further ideas they are up to!

Global Marketing Manager, Lubricant Supplier

We invested a bunch of money into a new Fleet Management System to get hold of the increasing requirements to processes and administration in shipping. Closelink is a valuable extension to actually save money as it does not only simplify processes, but does also allow better decision-making based on increased transparency.

Managing Director, Shipping Company

Simple and practical! That’s how software should look like today.
