In port before the ship’s arrival and after it departs, the ASA team will manage all aspects of port agency, delivering a wealth of experience and well developed local relationships. Our team can resolve any unexpected issues quickly and efficiently. As charterer’s or owner’s agents, we view ourselves as an extension of our principal’s offices, taking care of every detail that would protect our principals.
