The Maritime Pilot is the advisor of the Captain. He provides his service whenever the master of a ship calling a port requires a pilot. He is self employed by law and has to offer his services to ships through a Pilot Corporation. While performing his duty the Master of a ship is always responsible for the command of his vessel. The pilot may however take over the navigation of the vessel with the consent of the master. This does not relieve the master of being in command of his ship all the time.

Legislation determines which ships have to take a pilot by law.

We manage vessels, trucks and trains travelling with your products every day, which ensure the fastest possible delivery. Thanks to the immense size of our fleet (several hundred transport units), you know that your shipment is in good hands.

Liner shipping is the most efficient mode of transportation of goods. While individual ships vary in size and carrying capacity, many container ships can transport up to 8,000 containers of finished goods and products on a single voyage. Similarly, on a single voyage, some car carrier ships can handle 7,600 cars. It would require hundreds of freight aircraft, many miles of rail cars, and fleets of trucks to carry the goods that can fit on one large liner ship.

To help us achieve our goals and ensure complete customer satisfaction, we employ an up-to-date quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001 daily and practically adapt when needed. We understand quality management as a task of guidance and each employee is jointly responsible for the quality of their work. A continuous improvement process in all parts of the company helps us to uncover possible gaps and eliminate existing weak points.

smartfreightmobility.com

Freight logistics has an urban dimension. In view of stakeholders, any urban mobility policy must cover both passenger and freight transport. Distribution in urban areas requires efficient interfaces between long-haul transport and short distance distribution to the final destination. Smaller, efficient and clean vehicles could be used for local distribution. Negative impacts of long distance freight transport passing through urban areas should be reduced through planning and technical measures.

Urban freight optimisation clearly offers a large number of applications for new technologies and new concepts. Freight transport has been considered only recently and current technical or organisational solutions are just improvements of existing techniques, often in technological continuity.

Urban freight design is fully integrated in land use planning. To have liveable and attractive city centres in the future, new ones as well as older ones, and to avoid citizens wasting energy to get them, it is necessary to bring in goods, to have craftsmen working easily and to facilitate shopkeepers activities.

playtradebank.com

Banks are important facilitators of international trade. Besides providing liquidity they guarantee payment for around a fifth of world trade. The banking sector thus plays an important role in international business. Today, almost all Banks have formed collaborative alliances and established correspondent banking relationships with Banks in other countries to better serve their international business community. Banks play a key role in forming a bond of trust between buying and selling agents executing transactions in international markets. Local Banks have intermediary Banks outside the country, which assist in effecting international payments hence the receipt and payment for goods and services by local people.


Banks play a pivotal role in foreign trade through the provision of the financial structure and instruments necessary for the conduct of business transactions between foreign buyers and sellers. Banks ensure safety and transparency in the flow of documents and money. Buyers (importers) of goods from abroad, the sellers (exporters) will want to be assured of payment, and as a buyer one would want assurance that all terms and conditions of the purchase agreement are kept. This requires then that the Banks come in to broker an agreement and work as an intermediary between the importer and the exporter.


Banks play a major role by providing assistance in many ways to facilitate International Trade business which encompasses financing working capital requirements, financing capital goods, identification of potential markets for International Trade, identification of buyers and sellers, facilitating payment for International Trade transactions, issuing Import Letters of Credit, pre an post shipment financing and guaranteeing payment under Letters of Credit issued by other Banks.
