Get a running a start on your cost savings effort, with immediate effects from our service agreement.

One Online Documentation Portal: Virtual Agent

Our online portal provides a comprehensive overview of all your port calls worldwide. Electronic Disbursement Accounts allows for paperless DA handling, and since no hardcopy DA is sent by courier, savings up to USD100 can be made per call.

One Bank Account: Safe and Efficient cash transaction

Experience, fewer, safer and more efficient cash transactions: Use a single bank account for all your pre-funding and balance settlements, for all your port calls worldwide. You can have a float account to reduce the number of cash transactions drastically, saving up to USD 70 per port call in efficiency gains on cash transactions.

One Predictable Price Structure: Improved cost control

We offer clearly described services, and price per service rendered. The price is always the same when we deliver the same services in the same port - you know exactly what you are charged for and get no unpleasant surprises. With a service agreement, you can save up to 30% in charged agency related fees.
