Multimodal Freight Services

At Haulier Transport Services, we pride ourselves on finding solutions to any logistics problem. That’s why we offer a full multimodal logistics service. With a number of long-term partners in sea freight, air freight and rail freight, we have the relationships and expertise to take on logistics contracts that involve more than one mode of transport ensuring the safe delivery of goods, regardless of origin or destination.

Freight logistics has an urban dimension. In view of stakeholders, any urban mobility policy must cover both passenger and freight transport. Distribution in urban areas requires efficient interfaces between long-haul transport and short distance distribution to the final destination. Smaller, efficient and clean vehicles could be used for local distribution. Negative impacts of long distance freight transport passing through urban areas should be reduced through planning and technical measures.

As an international freight forwarder, we pride ourselves on our reputation for universally recognised service excellence. PlayNovocc is an N.V.O.C.C, providing international freight forwarding across the globe. Whether you have a Full Container Load (FCL) or Less Than Container Load (LCL) we can quickly organize the transportation of your shipment to and from any destination in the world. 

As a Master Loader of Containers, we offer significant cost-reducing opportunities with our superior consolidation service for the most economical outcome. Dedicated consolidation containers are loaded weekly for import and export, to and from, all major ports worldwide. Our team of highly qualified staff are also on hand to assist with all documentation requirements to expedite the customs clearance process. 

Port Terminal

Port Terminal operates one of the world’s most comprehensive port and integrated inland service networks. We’re uniquely positioned to help both shipping line and landside customers grow their business and achieve better supply chain efficiency, flexibility and dependability.

Throughout our history we have set out to achieve excellence and have established new standards in our field. We have an unparalleled track record in acquiring terminals and adding substantial value by enhancing their efficiency. Our knowledge, skills and expertise also enables us to navigate and operate in different political and economic environments.

We take pride in our partnerships and work closely alongside governments and local authorities who are divesting themselves of maritime port assets through privatisation or sale.

The support of our stakeholders is a key element of our prosperity and we always strive to exceed their expectations of us.

We offer the consignees and the ship owners a high quality service: quick and safe both for the vessel and for the professionals who perform such service. The quality in the service is obtained thanks to a team of professionals who master the mooring activity.

Pilotage Services

The Maritime Pilot is the advisor of the Captain. He provides his service whenever the master of a ship calling a port requires a pilot. He is self employed by law and has to offer his services to ships through a Pilot Corporation. While performing his duty the Master of a ship is always responsible for the command of his vessel. The pilot may however take over the navigation of the vessel with the consent of the master. This does not relieve the master of being in command of his ship all the time.

Legislation determines which ships have to take a pilot by law.


The towing service focuses its main functions on port, coastal and offshore towing, as well as on maritime salvage. This division is leading the towing sector with a fleet of more than 100 tugs distributed by the main ports of Europe, Mediterranean region and Asia.

Towage means the assistance given to a waterborne vessel by means of a tug in order to allow for a safe entry or exit of the port or safe navigation within the port by providing assistance to the manoeuvring of the waterborne vessel.

We see towage as our task to service our customers in the best possible way, truly understanding their needs, think with them all the way and exceeding expectations whenever we can.

This translates into what we call: Made to Mesure Towage Services, flexible services in the ports that go beyond the towing itself. Always put quality and safety first, the result counts in the end.

We continuously look for further improvements for our communication and availability in order to be there exactly at the right time, also when a ship comes in earlier or later than expected. We know circumstances are never the same at sea and in the port, where every single day is different.

A thorough preparation of the task you ask us, makes sure that the right tug is waiting for you at the right time. So, we are ready when you need us and we go all the way to make the turnaround time as short as possible.

The integrated approach to food safety is covered by the following sections:


Every citizen has the right to know how the food they eat is produced, processed, packaged, labelled and sold.

The central goal of the World Food Safety policy is to ensure a high level of protection of human health regarding the food industry, one of the largest manufacturing and employment sector.

The guiding principle, primarily set out in its White Paper on Food Safety, is to apply an integrated approach from farm to fork covering all sectors of the food chain.


The objective of the Animal Health policy is to raise the health status and improve the conditions of the animals in the world, in particular food-producing animals, whilst permitting international trade and imports of animals and animal products in accordance with the appropriate health standards and international obligations.

Banks are important facilitators of international trade. Besides providing liquidity they guarantee payment for around a fifth of world trade. The banking sector thus plays an important role in international business. Today, almost all Banks have formed collaborative alliances and established correspondent banking relationships with Banks in other countries to better serve their international business community. Banks play a key role in forming a bond of trust between buying and selling agents executing transactions in international markets. Local Banks have intermediary Banks outside the country, which assist in effecting international payments hence the receipt and payment for goods and services by local people.

Banks play a pivotal role in foreign trade through the provision of the financial structure and instruments necessary for the conduct of business transactions between foreign buyers and sellers. Banks ensure safety and transparency in the flow of documents and money. Buyers (importers) of goods from abroad, the sellers (exporters) will want to be assured of payment, and as a buyer one would want assurance that all terms and conditions of the purchase agreement are kept. This requires then that the Banks come in to broker an agreement and work as an intermediary between the importer and the exporter.

Banks play a major role by providing assistance in many ways to facilitate International Trade business which encompasses financing working capital requirements, financing capital goods, identification of potential markets for International Trade, identification of buyers and sellers, facilitating payment for International Trade transactions, issuing Import Letters of Credit, pre an post shipment financing and guaranteeing payment under Letters of Credit issued by other Banks.
