From a humble beginning in February 1985, ATLANTIC GLOBAL SHIPPING (AGS) has, to its credit, over 36 years of Port Agency and Logistical Services to the Oil / Chemical Tanker Owners. Today AGS is one of the leading Port Agencies in India with strong fundamentals providing a wide spectrum of “ONE STOP” services - Customs / CHA / Technical / Legal / Travel – through its own ‘in – house’ out- fits under its umbrella. Thanks to our esteemed Principals, in India and abroad, for their unstinted support. Thanks to them also for fuelling our urge to go beyond!
AGS’s registered office is based in Mumbai (Nariman Point) from where all banking transactions are handled. Its Head Office is also based in Mumbai (Lower Parel) from where all agency – related activities are monitored. AGS has two Divisions, one for handling Tankers for the Public (Government) Sector Oil Companies and another for the Private Sector Oil Companies. AGS also acts as General Agents / Owner’s Protective Agents (OPA) / Charterers Agents.
At the helm of affairs is a Team of professionals from the Oil /Shipping Industries and Experts on Taxation / Customs Laws with a combined experience of over 100 years to provide guidance and solutions apart from the services of Master Mariners and Technical Superintendents. AGS has a net-work of its own Branch Offices at all Indian Ports managed by well experienced Locals and hence no sub - Agents are involved.
On an average, per annum, AGS handles over 50% of the Tanker Traffic at Indian Ports. AGS is one of the few ISO 9001:2015 Certified Port Agencies in India by Det Norske Veritas and Accredited by the RVA. For assessment of efficiency level in AGS’s performance, a written feedback from Master and Owner of every vessel is obtained. In case of any lapse a Root – Cause Analysis is made internally, basis which corrective measures are taken to avoid recurrence of the same lapse in future.
Thought's of MD's
Being a service - oriented establishment the endeavour of ATLANTIC GLOBAL SHIPPING (AGS), as Port Agents, is to attain customer satisfaction beyond expectations through “UNIQUE” performance of Agency Services. Rendering and constantly maintaining the same quality of services, protecting and balancing the interests of all concerned with vessel/cargo and minimizing costs, makes AGS’s performance “UNIQUE”. In providing personalized and customised services coupled with value added services, continually setting new yardsticks, also makes AGS a trend setter, giving a new dimension to Port Agency business.
AGS’s strengths lie in its belief that all allied services be rendered, under one UMBRELLA, through its own “IN-HOUSE” cells – Technical, Legal, Customs, CHA, Taxation, Travel – whereby dependence factor is zero.
More than 40 years old AGS is young but growing in stature. Our deepest gratitude and heartfelt thanks to our Principals, worldwide, for their trust and confidence reposed in AGS, but for which this growth would not have been accomplished.
Known for its professionalism, AGS is the only Port Agency having professional Directors with a long and reputed tenure in state-owned oil companies. Thus, AGS has the right expertise along with a young enterprising and motivated Team of personnel, performing under the stewardship of Team Leaders who are Master Mariners/Marine Engineers, endeavoring to achieve the set targets. Team’s performance is always under the scanner and reviewed from time to time, vis–a–vis the set targets. Necessary guidance and training is imparted to maintain consistency in the laid down standards of performance. Against this back-drop AGS’s vision is:
