Our operations began in 1958 in the port of Talcahuano, delivering our services to vessels represented by CPT
Empresas Marítimas S.A.
Since then, we have established a network of offices serving all main ports of Chile. We have expanded agency activities to a full range of port terminal operation and management services including in-port towage, and boat services for the transport of pilots, authorities, crews, and cargo. Since 2010, we have been operating in the main
ports of Peru including Callao, Pisco, Paita, and Talara.
‘From port to final destination’ – Our experienced specialist logistics team offers a comprehensive service to co-ordinate the consolidation of your cargo, its storage, handling and land transportation. We can provide these services with our own professional managed services and land fleet, and with trusted local partners who share our commitment to high excellence of service.
