Herbert Engineering Corp. has developed leading edge software solutions for the marine industry for over 30 years.

Our products and programming capability have been essential elements of our own design and engineering services. They have allowed us to respond quickly and efficiently to new regulations and engineering techniques. Herbert Engineering is committed to maintaining this important capability and continues to develop software applications to enhance our engineering analyses.


In 2001, HEC spun off a wholly-owned subsidiary charged with further development of HEC’s software products.  This company, Herbert Software Solutions, LLC (HSSI) evolved into Herbert-ABS Software Solutions, LLC a joint venture with American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), in 2011.  It is dedicated to supporting and enhancing the well-established CargoMax™ product line of onboard loading instruments, cargo preplanning software, load management systems for offshore platforms, and computer-based training systems. Additionally, the company is responsibile for the development and marketing of HEC’s successful HECSALV™ casualty response and ship design software used by major classification societies, shipyards, navies, salvors, and oil/chemical tanker fleets. HEC and Herbert-ABS are able to build on the great synergies that exist between well established engineering capabilities on the one hand and 30+ years of commercial marine software development on the other. The two companies are located in the same facility in order to ensure coordinated customer support.
