The acquisition of Buss Data enables Pro Nautas to expand its range of products and services, alongside enhanced customer support. Together, the companies will focus on growing the digital platform and providing their customers with intelligent data services, powerful insights and analytics.

Buss Data brings technological know-how, expertise and a strong market position. The company's solutions are used by leading shipping companies and have been installed on more than 1,500 vessels since the company was founded.
