All in-port services
Your funds are safe with us.
Protective agency for shipowners and charterers
We know the local and state regulations, as well as port information, restrictions, supplier cost levels, etc.
We scrutinize the DA to ensure you are not overcharged and to keep your operations on schedule e.g. verifying that pilots are on time and that the correct number of tug boats is ordered.
We follow straight course and compliance principles. With a protective agent, you can settle the PDA and funds through us, giving you more control over shipper or receivers agent as we are better positioned to challenge them with local know-how.
STATEMENT OF FACTS (SOF)
We will carefully revise the SOF in order to always protect your interest, and avoid any misunderstanding with not requested items.
REACH US 24/7
We are at your full service 24/7 during loading and discharging operations to assist and intervene with shippers/receivers agent as requested and if applicable.
Innovation in logistics
In a business full of maps drawn and routes covered, we like to take a different direction.
We offer innovative solutions that drive value for our customers and reduce their time and investment in transportation.
When the traditional route indicated that we had to undertake the transport by sea and land, we chose to review the logistics circuit and to seek tailor-made solutions. For the first time in Uruguay a transshipment of rails from an ocean-going vessel was executed entirely by inland waterway from Nueva Palmira to Paysandú. A milestone in the history of our business. A business success for our customer.
We know the bussiness
We know the business. Our challenge is the optimization of each step, minimizing costs for our clients and maximizing the value of our proposition.
