Operational Services

Our experienced operations team at Magna begins their work before a voyage is fixed, by checking and making sure that back to back shipping terms are being equally fixed and used between all parties involved on the Fixture. Once voyage is fixed, we take care of nominating a performer vessel to all parties involved (Shippers/Receivers/Agents), making sure all of them have been properly provided with nominated performer vessel and same is duly confirmed timely.

Upon final performer vessels' confirmation, we nominate Ship Agents and establishes contact with them, both at loading and discharging ports, in order to ensure they are fully and duly appointed and reported. Prior to the beginning of the voyage, we start tracking vessels' position to secure her arrival at loading port within the agreed loading dates and we monitor and manage the full voyage by providing complete information about arrival notices, sea passage, daily loading/discharging evolution and checking/control of cargo documents.

Our work is not fully completed without lay time and time sheet revision and assessment, which we can provide for every shipment, checking that they are properly calculated according to agreed shipping terms and always trying to obtain as much profit as possible. Apart from the above regular services that we do on a regular basis, our team offers and provides shipping assessment on cargo claims and damages to avoid reaching the last step with lawyers or arbitrators. All above services are of course, always under a fully private and confidential atmosphere since no any information is disclosed to any third party without consent.
