A competent and aggressive agent is the difference between a smooth, efficient and low-expense call and a painful one; the presence of one our personnel aboard your vessel 24/7 during the call, if you wish, is just one example of how we go out of our way to ensure your vessel’s needs are met as soon as they arise. We would like the opportunity to be appointed as port agents at Beirut or any  Lebanese Port whenever you have a vessel calling at these ports or when you have a need for a protective agent anywhere else.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for additional clarification or to discuss with us any particular needs or concerns; our knowledge of Lebanese ports and procedures is extensive.
