Why Greensea

Fish shipping specialist

For us, it is important to ship your fish or other cargo globally. From any place around the world to any port around the world. GreenSea distinguishes itself from other companies by its unique approach: whereas most fishing vessels have to return to the closest port when they have loaded their cargo, GreenSea’s clients can stay right where they are. Our vessels load your cargo at sea. Always on the spot and on time. Or even as early as you want us to be. As a result, you won’t waste any time. We make sure your cargo arrives at its destination, regardless of the port limitations. Because our vessels are specially designed with shallow draft and can sail into different kinds of ports around the world. We take care of your cargo, while you do the fishing. We deliver peace of mind.

Additionally, to ensure global and efficient transfer from fishing vessel to reefer vessel, our vessels are equipped with cargo gear and other cargo handling equipment. We have our own forklifts, cages and cargo nets. We have fenders that can be used for transshipment operations. This allows us to carry out transshipments in restricted ports or at high-sea. 

The GreenSea fleet is the largest in the sector and is comprised of some 45 high-standard, small to middle-sized, specialized reefer carriers, which we deploy worldwide to carry frozen fish, both in bulk and parcel. The capacity is as flexible as our client wants it to be.

You can count on us

At GreenSea, our relationship with our customers is imperative. By being close to our customers we can understand their business, which in combination with the size and flexibility of our fleet allows us to anticipate to the clients’ needs at short notice. Depending on the customer’s need we can deliver a contract of affreightment, spot voyage charters, parcel services, and time charters.

Close relations with our customers are invaluable. Short, efficient lines of communication allow us to know where and when they catch and where they sell. In addition, our vessels are licensed to operate in all fishing grounds and to receive fish from fishing vessels at open sea in line with governing rules and regulations. Due to these strong customer relationships, we can attune our vessels and capacity to our customer’s need.

GreenSea takes full responsibility for the logistics chain, quality and quantity of cargo on board and has developed procedures to ensure the same amount of cargo is delivered. GreenSea uses CCTV cameras on their vessels to register exactly what is being loaded or discharged. In this way, disputes are avoided. GreenSea acknowledges fish is a commodity with a high value.

GreenSea has ownership of the logistics chain, and so ensures efficiency and product quality. Depending on the needs of the customer, we take care of the trucking, the loading, the discharge, storage, and any other requirements. All of these services can be taken into account to preserve the cold chain, especially in African ports where direct services are not always available at the quay.

You can always count on us and our well-known services as market leader in fish logistics.
