Focusing on the special needs of each client has allowed us grow into a world leader in providing discharging, bagging and lighterage services worldwide

  • Lightering (also called lighterage) is the process of transferring cargo between vessels of different sizes, usually between a barge (lighter) and a bulker or oil tanker. Lightering is undertaken to reduce a vessel's draft so it can enter port facilities that cannot accept large fully-loaded ocean-going vessels. CA is experienced in this service.
