HOW CAN BOECKMANS HELP YOU?
A nice, sunshiny start of the day for our EuroAfrica vessel MV ESL AFRICA.
Ready to start discharging cocoa at Antwerp terminal of Vollers.
Operations always run smoothly thanks to the great cooperation.
Being separated from your family can be very difficult.
Here at Boeckmans it’s a priority to take care of our employees/seamen.
That’s why we find it heartening to see the reunion of our chief officer Sergey with his family.
It was a beautiful moment onboard of our MV Maremka and we are glad we could be a small part of their happiness!
It’s been a few months since the largest civilian hospital ship mv Global Mercy arrived at the Port of Antwerp, for further equipping before starting her first journey to West Africa.
MV Global Mercy’s arrived on September 12th 2021 in Antwerp from China, since then, our port agency department (AGZ Port Services) offered full assistance to this marvelous project, arranging 54 crew changes, including +- 100 corona-tests (3x different laboratories), quarantine hotels and numerous visa applications.
Service was given to collect bilge-water/sludge, ordering pilots & tugs, coordinating the logistics of frequent (spare)-parts delivery with other local partners. Furthermore, the whole crew was offered vaccination at local Mediport.
We’re happy to be volunteer for this wonderful project, which gives help to the less fortunate. Thumbs up for our agency team and all local Antwerp partners involved, it’s already been a journey.
