Teekay wants to move towards digitalisation, for this reason it decided to get a new email platform, to enhance its cyber security. The work was completed in three months while installation work on the remainder is underway.

Stuart Mackenzie, Regional and Vessel Systems IT Manager at Teekay Shipping, stated:

There was a lot of planning carried out across a number of our network of offices – including Glasgow, Manila, Vancouver and Singapore – and after some fine tuning of the systems following the results of the pilot project, we began the process of upgrading the email systems on the fleet. We saw the need for a more modern and proven maritime email solution, which included a file transfer solution built in.
