Welcome to a joined up world

In July 2021, Rio Tinto will go live and begin a 6 month migration phase to a new online fixture management platform called SeaFix/. With SeaFix/ all parties can mitigate risk, improve transparency and bring efficiency through the freight transaction processes.

As an external supplier to Rio Tinto, the roll out of this new platfrom will impact you and the way you work with us. Specifically:

  • The channels you use to communicate with our staff (Sea/chat)
  • The way you respond to, or negotiate and confirm fixtures (Sea/trade)
  • The process of drawing up a recap and Charter Party (Sea/contracts)

This site has been designed to introduce you to the tools you will need to access when working with us. Once you have created an account you will have full access to additional information including training material on how to use these tools. This has been created to ensure you can onboard quickly.

Over the next few weeks the information you will see as a registered user will grow with additional resources to help you learn more about the modules and tools that will be available to you, to help us all achieve a common goal of working in a more joined up way.
