Reliable and Professional Consignment Services
We understand the importance of bunkering to keep vessels operational. Our experienced team facilitates bunkering by providing fuel, fresh water, provisions, and spare parts supply services. We work closely with reliable suppliers to ensure timely provision of ship essentials, optimizing operational efficiency.
Port Call Management
Our maritime consignment services cover comprehensive ship call management. We coordinate all operational aspects, including port service organization, communication with port authorities, vessel movement planning, and resource optimization. Our goal is to ensure smooth calls that comply with regulatory requirements and predetermined deadlines.
Due to the specificity of our clients, ASA has extensive experience in industrial and high-tech activities (submarine cables) and the valorization of quarry products. ASA has also contributed to the development of cruise activities in the Port of Calais and the Atlantic coast. The level of organization expertise is very high, and a dedicated team can be assigned.
Maritime Transport Document Preparation
Transport document preparation is an essential task in maritime consignment operations. We handle the preparation and verification of all necessary documents, such as bills of lading, transport letters, customs declarations (with support from our Customs - Brexit service), and certificates. Our experienced team ensures that all documents are properly filled out, compliant with current regulations, and ready for smooth goods delivery.
Efficient Loading and Unloading
We specialize in coordinating the loading and unloading of goods during vessel calls. Our port logistics experts work closely with handling teams to optimize operations, ensuring efficient and secure handling of goods. We also manage customs formalities related to loading and unloading to ensure full compliance.
Although ASA is not a Freight Forwarder, we can also assist you by entrusting your requests and transport organization needs to our partners. We collaborate daily with the freight forwarder: M&L (Manutention et Logistique).
Commitment to Quality and Safety
Quality and safety are at the core of our maritime consignment operations. We are committed to upholding the highest standards in port operation safety and ensuring the protection of goods, crews, and the environment. We work closely with port authorities and regulatory bodies to ensure compliance with international standards and regulations.
