Marine provisioning

Full control of all shipments

Of course, Ritmeester Interfreight can move your goods to any quay or industrial area in North-western Europe, but our particular strength lies in the provisioning of ocean-going vessels and offshore platforms.

Whether or not dry, cooled or frozen foodstuffs are concerned, or MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Operating) supplies such as lubricants, marine paints and components, we will deliver your goods on board and ensure correct handling of the document flow – including all customs formalities, of course. We can take full responsibility for your shipments from the moment you commission us to do so.

On-time deliveries
The maritime industry becomes more dynamic day by day. The lay times of ocean-going vessels are becoming ever shorter and more unpredictable, which has turned provisioning into a major challenge. Ritmeester is aware of this challenge, and does everything in its power to ensure that vessels will sail with your goods on board.

We are in constant contact with shipping agents about arrival and departure times and we adjust our trip and delivery schedules accordingly. Is a vessel mooring later than planned? No problem. We can hold your goods at our support point in the port in question and deliver as soon as is feasible.

Safe and uninterrupted
The provisioning of oceangoing vessels is a trade in its own right. Our experienced drivers know their way around all the quays of all the seaports in North-western Europe, and will ensure safe and uninterrupted deliveries. Our vehicles incorporate the loading and unloading equipment required to deliver your goods – be it foodstuffs, hazardous substances or bulky and heavy components – on board.

Transparent & competitive rates
Quality and timeliness are key to our service provision, but we also strive to combine this with competitive rates. Our cost structure is completely clear and transparent, and if you prefer, we can draw up a service agreement beforehand so that all your costs are pre-determined.

In addition, we have a state-of-the-art ICT system which will provide you with an up-to-date online overview of all the services we are providing for you, including all costs and performances. Would you like to know what your monthly transport costs are? Would you like to know when a particular shipment was delivered? We can offer you the clarity and transparency you seek.
