In 1924, Lineas Noruego Sud Americanas S.A. started its activities as general agents for the Norwegian Owners for their liner services from Scandinavia to South America, and also acted as general agent for Westfal/Larsen for their service from Buenos Aires to Vancouver via West Coast of South America.
In 1929 the company decides it necessary to change its name for BASAL which stands for Buenos Aires Sud American Lines. Basal has been working in this business giving us the possibility to acquire the wide experience that we have today and to be in close contact with the market and customers.
Marítima Basal S.A., from the head office placed in Buenos Aires, and its branch in Bahia Blanca Port, is devoted to enhance its activities and offers itself as Shipbrokers for bulk cargoes, Shipping Agency for all Argentine ports, Sale & Purchase, Consulting and Stevedors and Tally.
Basal´s management today is made up of a professional young team with a wide experience in the shipping business acquired throughout the last 20 years. This experience allows us to provide a real efficient service to our customers in all the aspects of the liquid and dry cargo market and the operation of vessels in all Argentine ports and terminals.
