The Alfaship group proudly looks back upon almost 30 years successfully operating as a ship agents. We run our own offices in Barcelona, Las Palmas, Algeciras, Bilbao, Cartagena, Ceuta, Gibraltar, Huelva, Tarragona and Tenerife, we cherish also our clients with the same excellence in all other ports we serve in Spain and Portugal and at all the terminals and FSPOs we operate in West and North Africa through our Hub Headquarters based in Barcelona.

From our Bunker & Offshore Agency Division located in Las Palmas we coordinate all bunker calls and owners matters in the Canary Islands and Gibraltar Strait and we guarantee our usual tailor made 24/7 service, keeping our customers always fully and punctually informed. In addition, our Offshore Desk offers full service support to seismic, supply and research vessels, together with comprehensive attendance to drilling rigs.

In 2010 we expanded our activity and settled our own Brokering department, Alfa Tanker Chartering, headed by Ferran Cortázar with over 20 years of experience in tanker chartering. Alfa Tanker is mainly dedicated to the chartering of liquid cargoes, a specificity that generates a unique and high degree of experience and know-how in the chemicals and edible oils chartering. Today we are proud to serve both majors and small trading houses in the chartering requirements.

With the purpose of providing our customers with a wider range of services, in 2014 Alfa Customs opened its doors, a Customs Brokerage & Legal Advice department specialized in the Oil business. The Alfa Customs desk is headed by Ms. Esperanza Cesar, a highly experienced and recognized professional, who leads a team of experts on import/export regulations covering all the special customs measures (antidumping, end use, etc.), classification, compliance procedures, customs warehouses, temporary imports and security initiatives to complement in-house trade functions.

The Alfaship Group bases its daily work in values that guide our team to be committed to providing the best service:

As a result of our passion for excellence.

We only accept client’s full satisfaction.

Breaking barriers and developing cooperative results.

A commitment to our client’s trust.

Alfaship new office


Dear Valued Customer,

We are delighted to announce that from December, 1st 2018, ALFASHIP INTERNACIONAL S.A will change its corporate name to ALFASHIP MARITIME SERVICES S.L.

The variation has occurred based on art 70 of Law 3/2009, of April 3, which regulates, among others, the mergers and division’s regime and it’s a consequence of the significant growth of Alfaship group.

To better present ourselves as truly innovative and trusted service company to the shipping industry worldwide, we have divided or customs and shipping agency areas in two independent companies. Alfacustoms SA kept our old VAT A58672965 and we stablished a new company Alfaship Maritime Services SL, with VAT: B67248252, which will carry on with all ship agency related business.

This rebranding will not affect other aspects of the company structure such as shareholder structure, management, website, email addresses and all existing contracts, past accounting and balances you may have with us will be automatically transferred to Alfaship Maritime Services SL.

The only additional changes you will see are our new banking details and VAT number as informed. As a consequence, our updated full style will read:

  • 08001 BARCELONA
  • T: +34935677700 (24HR)
  • VAT: B67248252

Please do not hesitate to contact our sales, operations or accountings team in case you have any further questions. The Alfaship, Alfatanker and Alfacustoms commitment to our customers and partners remains our highest priority.

Yours faithfully

Eduardo Ferran Aguado
