Services (Port) Agency
AHLMANN-ZERSSEN is represented along the coasts of the North and Baltic Seas with its own offices and highly motivated and qualified staff to ensure a smooth and quick clearance and handling of ships in German, Latvian and (via our Peterson Polska colleagues at) Polish ports, too.
As port agent AHLMANN-ZERSSEN prepares and generates all necessary documents and arranges and looks after the entire handling of every vessel - from arrival to departure, whereby contact is also kept with all authorities involved (e.g. customs, port authorities) and all cargo parties involved (such as terminals, importers, exporters) in order to arrange a smooth loading/discharging.
The port agencies are central contacts with the shipping companies, masters and crews on the one hand and the charterers, shippers and receivers on the other on a 24/7 basis.
In addition to the special requirements of the ship (crew changes, provisions, spare parts, repairs, cash payments, etc.), AHLMANN-ZERSSEN will also be happy to take on the entire disposition / forwarding of the cargo to the end customer if requested by the client.
