The growing economies of the Persian Gulf, East Africa, South Asia and South East Asia offer tremendous opportunity for shipping.

To achieve this, LOTS International owns and operates two vessels on the Indian subcontinent and near coastal waters. The company has also acquired a tug and barge combination for deploying on the project work. LOTS International through its world wide network of agents and experts is able to source equipments for cargo handling and salvage from any part of the world at very competitive rates.

Port Captains
Effective Cargo Superintendence through competent Port Captains has positively impacted ship handling both at the load and discharge ports. With over twelve years of dedicated service, LOTS International has gained invaluable experience and understanding of port requirements in some difficult ports around the world.

The primary role of the Port Captain is to address and resolve problems and concerns faced by ship owners and operators at ports across the world. The clear objective is to significantly improve voyage profits for the ship owner or the operator.
