International Andromeda Shipping SAM (I.A.S.), operating as an independent Ship Management company, is currently managing a fleet of owned and third parties vessels ranging from 37,000 to 150,000 DWT.
The strength of Andromeda lies in the high professionalism and experience of its staff and their broad understanding of the shipping industry. Chartering, operations, technical, crew administration, vessel inspections and superintendence of dry-dock works or any required project are all performed by highly skilled professionals, who have gathered the equivalent of hundreds of years of shipping experience in dealing with any possible situation and different types of vessels. Safety, pollution prevention and shipboard maintenance at competitive and cost-effective rates are our well achieved targets.
Highest level of Ship Management services are offered by Andromeda to its customers in Chartering and Demurrages, Operations, Technical management, Quality assurance, Crewing and Manning, Insurance, H&M and P+I claims.
Our services offered cover every aspect of a vessel’s day by day operation, planned maintenance, running repairs, dry-docking, administration, supervision and constant monitoring of vessels also counting on very good and close ship and shore communications.
I.A.S. is geared up to provide a totally customer-driven service with a total commitment towards the ship owners; a sophisticated control system with document management system and communications network provide owners with information about their vessels in real time, offering also a complete and updated analysis of vessel’s costs, on daily basis.
Technical/purchasing/crewing managers are required to follow strictly the budget requirements and a periodical check on vessel’s economic performances is performed on a continuous basis.
An end of the year report is finally compiled by management, where both budgeted and un-budgeted costs are documented, analysed and justified.
The advantages that a small but growing independent ship management company like International Andromeda Shipping SAM can offer to its customers compared to any of the big companies in ship management are several:
Services offered by large and structured ship management companies are often bare, basic and impersonal, granting only the minimum requirements to maintain the vessel in operation. While a smaller and independent Company like Andromeda will undertake the management of vessels like they were own property, handling the ships with higher quality, with a more flexible behaviour and a quicker reaction to any necessary change.
