Historically, sea freight shipping was a key driver of international commerce. Shipping goods by sea is still popular today due to low costs, high load capacities, and minimal restrictions on goods acceptable for transport.

The majority of all cargo delivered in the world is transported by sea. Cargo vessels can carry crude oil, petroleum products, chemical industry products, condensed gas, raw materials, equipment, cars, livestock and many other types of cargo. Some of these items have hazardous characteristics and can not only damage the vessel but also the environment. Therefore, potentially hazardous sea freight is strictly regulated by national and international norms.
AsstrA closely follows changes in the regulation of international sea freight and delivers cargo quickly, securely, and appropriately for its characteristics.
