Patron Group Ltd. carries out transportation of general cargo and project cargo, worldwide. Our equipment allows us to offer a range of solutions, depending on the size and nature of the cargo. Our service includes heavy lifting if required.
Our sister company is an international freight forwarding company, with a strong network on mainland Europe. Hence we are able to support our clients with all-round knowledge of freight forwarding, and also with the option of a complete shipping solution.
Through our subsidiary Logserv Co. Ltd., we operate the Ro-Ro / General Cargo vessel M/V ‘Med Patron’ which transports vehicles, pallets, jumbo bags, live stock, shipping containers and other general cargo, between Augusta Port (Sicily), Valletta Port (Malta) and Zuwarah Port (Libya). The vessel’s specifications are included in this brochure.
The M/V ‘Med Patron’ is also available for charter, for both short or long term, to any country or port required by our client. We do not operate on a fixed rotation schedule, so we enjoy the flexibility we need to accommodate our clients’ charter requirements.
The ‘Med Patron’ has a multilevel cargo hold for loading smaller cargo. However, the middle deck can be removed thus creating a deeper hold, in order to load larger/higher objects. The vessel can be top loaded through the top hatch (17m x 7m), through the Side Doors (2.32m wide) or through the Bowdoor (2.37m x 3m).
For the transportation of larger cargo and project cargo, we operate the Flat Top Barge ‘Patron 1’ (62m x 14.5m) with a deck strength of 5 tons/m2, totaling a capacity of around 2500 tons (towed by one of our tugs). We also operate the A.H.T.S. ‘Sea Patron’ for cargo transportation on it’s 150 m2deck, having a total capacity of 150m2. The specifications are included in this brochure.
