I would like to share the following statement.

Evaluation of the Alfa Maritima Company and Luis Antonio Urdaneta Eraso.

Alfa Maritima is a reliable and professional company in the supply service of bulk carriers, maritime transport, and coordination of the entire supply chain related to maritime transport.

  • Alfa Maritima started its operations with Ferro Aluminio in 1993. For reasons beyond the control of Ferro Aluminio, the company was left without bauxite, one of the main raw materials in the production line. Alfa Maritima located in record time a bulk carrier vessel and carried out all the corresponding logistical arrangements to achieve the success of the bauxite shipment, thus in record time, two weeks, the aforementioned raw material arrived at the company’s yards, to continue operations at the factory.
  • Between 1993 and 2005, when the exchange control began in Venezuela, bauxite imports were paralyzed. Alfa Marítima demonstrated reliability and security in the bauxite maritime transport operations, always complying with the arrival of ships at the port of loading, within the agreed laycan.

  • Alfa Maritima and Luis Antonio Urdaneta, as coordinator of the Bauxite supply chain, from the supplier Bauxite Mines of Guyana to the factory in Venezuela, always demonstrated excellent coordination, with each of the links in the supply chain, ensuring that the bauxite flow efficiently from the mines in Guyana to the yards of the Ferro Aluminio factory in Venezuela. The losses and delays were always minimal. Likewise, Alfa Marítima and its suppliers always complied with environmental laws, with almost zero pollution, and cleanliness of the unloading docks.

  • Alfa Marítima, helped to break paradigms in the company, significantly increasing the quantities of bauxite per shipment, which allowed it to achieve economies of scale, increasing the competitiveness of the company both in Venezuela and in its exports.

  • For all the above facts, I recommend the services of Alfa Maritima and Luis Urdaneta, as excellent, their know-how, which is and will be a strategic value for any industrial company whose product, commodity, requires the use of maritime transport, bulk carriers, in conjunction with good logistics to ensure efficient operations.

If you need any other information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
