Auxiliary maritime services

Leaders in efficiency and naval precision: crane operation, stevedores services, warehouse management

Auxiliary shipping services

SUARDIAZ Group offers a package of auxiliary shipping services that we configure according to each project’s needs.

We can take care of transporting goods inside docks and private or licensed facilities, providing both cranes or vehicles and stevedores or drivers for moving containers. Our team is highly qualified and certified to act efficiently and safely. This way, we always manage to meet the set timeframes for loading and unloading.

Our auxiliary shipping services also include everything related to moving vessels, such as employing specialised crew, mooring blocks and handling heavy items, mending crane cables, mooring cables, and more. As comprehensive consultants, we cover all tasks related to shipping logistics projects, offering an agility that our clients appreciate, especially when it comes to urgent services.

Experts in logistics and auxiliary shipping services nationally


In the shipping sector, many activities emerge over the course of time, when incorporating new technologies or in order to respond to new client demands. We are one of the few to conduct sea trials support. SUARDIAZ Group is experienced in adapting to current trends to transform its services so that they continue to be innovative and bring value to the market. That is why, even though we began at the Puerto Real y San Fernando shipyard, we now provide services in Ferrol, Cartagena and Saudi Arabia.

Over time, we have incorporated new services that are linked to shipping logistics: loading and unloading lorries, computerised material management through the SAP HANA program, loading and unloading containers, inspecting cargo, managing warehouses, customs clearances, manoeuvring, managing steel yards, stacking and unstacking.

As experts in logistics, we are also experts in taking steps towards the sector’s future. We are recognised for our good practices and for the long-term vision of our projects.

Speed and experience

At SUARDIAZ Group, we have a clear vision of what clients’ needs are and what auxiliary shipping solutions can give them the best response. This means that projects are planned with realistic timeframes and requirements to be met.

Another factor that we take great care to protect is sustainability because we are aware of the importance of our contribution so that our clients can see us as both a responsible and reliable company as well as one that is respectful of the environment.

What does the logistics of auxiliary shipping services consist of?

Auxiliary shipping services are generally understood to mean activities that support the functioning of the vessels, whether at port or at sea. They involve providing specialised staff, forklift operators, stevedores, crew, performing dry-dock manoeuvres, working on loading and unloading vessels, manoeuvring heaving items, and other tasks.

Even though they are called auxiliary, these services bring a great deal of value to a port logistics project because without them, shipping transportation would be impossible.

Do they have specialised equipment?

Having specialised equipment that can respond to the characteristics of each operation is essential to carrying out auxiliary shipping services. We have equipment for loading and unloading, such as forklifts for different load capacities, equipment for hoisting special items and spreaders for containers.

Similarly, it is very useful to be able to design customised solutions that, for example, insure the goods throughout maritime transportation. Having engineers in the team enables us to make proposals that are realistic, efficient and sustainable in order to use resources responsibly and protect the environment and people.
