Through providing a 24-hour airport transfer through its vehicles, EMCO provides its principals with all the necessary aspects for a successful operation.

PRINCIPALS are advised to contact EMCO’s operations team via email prior to vessel’s arrival to allow for sufficient planning and valuable advice regarding flights, accommodation, and formalities.
