What we do
Focused on the dry bulk market, we attend ships coming to Brazilian ports for the purpose of loading or discharging products such as soybeans, sugar, wheat, corn, fertilizer, sulfur etc. We are also able to attend tankers and mineral cargoes, such as coal and iron ore derivatives.
We also give support to Shipowners, by hiring and coordinating items of nautical nature, such as exchange of crew members, supplies of food, water, bunkering, ship repairs, medical care of crew members, holds and hull etc (Protective Agent Service) and as port operators, we offer a competitive service of loading and discharging vessels, ensuring a quick a smooth turnaround, avoiding heavy congested line ups of conventional discharging terminals.
Beyond the conventional agency service, Alphamar transcends the port limits, where most of the ship agencies focus their efforts. We also offer consultancy on chartering, logistics and Brazilian agribusiness specializing in tailor made studies for our main clients. As logistics consultants, we provide a comprehensive understanding of the full supply chain for our partners.

Our Research & Marketing department compiles market related and port data on a daily, monthly and annual basis providing statistics that demonstrate totals of cargoes exported and imported throughout Brazil.
We pride ourselves in supporting our clients from the very beginning of the Business, assisting in understanding the best periods for declaring laycans with Owners, contractual clauses which can be beneficial in each port and checking the approval of vessels for operation.
Aiming at providing a better understanding of the whole supply chain for our partners, we developed a comprehensive study for all logistics involved on the origination of grain commodities, using Google Earth as a visualization tool.
Conflicts and different interpretations of the facts may arise when performing the calculation of laytime and demurrage. Charterers can contact us to clear doubts and check the accuracy of the calculations submitted by the carriers.
We are at our customer’s disposal if they need some particular research or study on specific ports, terminals, projects, port logistics or related to the movements of grains and fertilizers.
