Coastal and inland vessels serve the important task of connecting goods to remote and interior parts of country which are otherwise unreachable for the large ocean carriers. They are an efficient and cost effective mode of transport which contribute to reducing the overall cost as well as the carbon footprints of the value chain transport.

We , at IRCLASS, ensure that your fleet is up to standard throughout its lifecycle. So as to service you to optimally long periods.
