ESMA Logistics is an efficient, reliable and flexible forwarding agent, having built up a wealth of experience over the past 35 years.
The company forms a vital part of ESMA International’s operations and more and more for others as well and arranges warehousing, transportation by air, sea and road. Communication lines are short. The company is ideally situated close to Schiphol Airport and the seaports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp.
ESMA Logistics arranges transports of parts and materials for her customers on a daily basis.
Frequently the transports ESMA Logistics organizes cannot be called standard. The nature of the ESMA customer requires sometimes extraordinary shipments, including the air cargo transportation of for example heavy (drive) shafts or pipe segments weighing many tonnes, because it is essential that these parts reach their destination quickly for ship repairs. Recently ESMA Logistics B.V. arranged a door-to-door transportation of six-meter long pipe segments that had been ordered by a shipyard in the Middle East. To prevent damage to the shipment and hold of the aircraft, the pipes were packaged in reinforced crates.
In addition to special transportation that requires particular attention because the weight and/or measurements deviate, the more standard shipments are also in good hands at ESMA Logistics. We are familiar with all cargo handling possibilities and select the right means of transportation (air, sea or road transport) to ensure that your shipment arrives at its destination on time.
ESMA Logistics can arrange the entire shipment, if desired. This includes:
Collection of the goods from the supplier throughout Europe and even further away.
Goods inspections on reception.
Repackaging the goods in accordance with the transportation company’s requirements and assuring reliable, problem free delivery.
Arranging additional requirements when needed for shipping goods by air, sea and road.
Custom clearance on export and security declaration for air freight.
Maintaining contact with the client’s logistics partner to ensure that the shipment arrives quickly at the right place in the destination country.
The company has its own warehouse facilities equipped with an overhead traveller crane and a 2.5 tonne forklift truck. Shipments can be repackaged here and prepared for shipment in accordance with the transportation company’s requirements.
ESMA Logistics was recently designated as an authorised air cargo shipping agent by the Dutch Border Police and is now included in the Dutch Border Police register. The advantage is that client shipments don't suffer any delay as a result of security checks. ESMA Logistics is has direct access to the airport, enabling delivery of the shipment directly to the airline ground handler.
