Intermare provides ships with a single dedicated representative
Intermare provides each ship with a single and exclusively dedicated representative. Our agents are experts, highly flexible and very careful in making the arrival of the ship into port a simple and fast operation and above all, free of setbacks.

Specialists in liner service, heavy lift contractors and project cargo
Traditionally, Intermare is oriented towards liner service, for contractors of heavy lift and project cargo, a complex and articulate activity to manage. Thanks to this background, we are able to provide all types of commercial ships with a fast and efficient service and constant assistance throughout all the operational stages.
Intermare has its historical headquarters in Genoa, one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean. In the Port of Genoa, we can provide a thorough and integrated service for all the needs of the ship. In addition to the regular operations of loading and unloading, we organize and supervise all possible reparations in port or in dry dock, covering all costs on behalf of the client, including those for replacement parts, welding, lashing and unlashing.
The Genoa office also supervises all the operations in all Italian ports; in particular:
