Road Transportation

Greece is located at a key position in the Balkan Peninsula, connecting Europe with Turkey. The entrance of many Eastern Balkan countries in the European Union has facilitated significantly the link between Greece and Northern Europe. The simplification of customs documentation when crossing the boarders has led to a much shorter transit time and transportation via truck has become more appealing especially when fast cargo delivery is required
The West European destinations are served with combined ferry/truck transportation. The ferry service is linking Greece with the East Italian ports from one port in northern Greece (Igoumenitsa) and one in the south (Patras).
For OOG (out of gauge) cargoes or heavy weighted cargoes, our company can provide different types of special trucks such as jumbo chassis, tilt chassis etc.

Rail Transportation

The rail is a rapidly growing way of cargo transportation and can serve as either an alternative or even as solution in cases where truck transportation is not feasible or when sea container service is too slow.
Rail transportation is a fast and efficient way of delivering cargoes throughout Europe. Greece has frequent railway connections to many European countries such as Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, U.K., France, Germany and Switzerland.
The equipment used for the rail containerized service is 45’ containers (pallet wide) and swap bodies (open side)
Our company proposes multi modal transportation (truck/rail) as an environmental friendly, cost-effective and fast solution for Door to Door deliveries.

Air Transportation

A significant volume of cargo which is either sensitive to transportation or extremely urgent often requires airfreight solutions. Euromare, as an IATA member, can provide very competitive rates combining the quick transportation of cargo with a reliable service.
We can collect / distribute consignments even from locations that do not have an airport, therefore combine truck and air service and provide Door to Door deliveries in order to meet the customer’s requirements. Our company can also undertake transportation of perishable goods with Unit Load Devices (ULD).


In order to cover all aspects of transportation and provide an integrated and complete service to our client, our personnel is also qualified to deal with all sorts of activities related to customs documentation in a reliable, efficient and quick way, always looking after the customer’s interest.

  • Customs clearance / T2L

a) EU origin cargo: Most of the main Greek ports, such as Piraeus and Thessaloniki, are Free Zone terminals. Therefore a T2L is always required in order to certify the EU origin of the cargo. Our company handles both T2L issuance / clearance at a competitive cost for all import/export shipments.

b) Non EU origin cargo: For cargoes coming and destined to a non - EU member country, the customs procedure is slightly different but can also be handled by our company’s qualified personnel. For the quickest and most efficient accomplishment of the customs clearance procedure, it is important that all documents required are at least two working days before at our disposal.

  • Transit / Transhipment formalities
Being located in the northern part of Greece, Euromare has established a reliable and stable cooperation with many companies in the neighbouring countries such as Bulgaria, F.Y.R.O.M., Albania, Serbia and Romania. A significant number of “in transit” cargoes are handled by our office with the support of our partners situated in the Balkans. The proximity of Thessaloniki with other Balkan countries allows us to cover our clients’ needs in terms of transportation as well as customs documentation. Our company’s personnel is familiar with the entire documentation procedure and can guarantee a quick and reliable accomplishment of all “in transit” procedures / formalities.


Warehousing and logistics are not a widely spread practice in the Greek market and are mostly served on a third party basis due to the fact that the majority of companies have their own warehouses and they are not in need of this particular service. However, we have the possibility to apply warehousing / logistics service, via our sub-contractors, where and when this is required by the customer.

Project Cargo

A high level of expertise is required when companies are confronted with the traffic of commodities that require special handling during transportation. A significant volume of oversized / overweight cargo is assigned to our company as we carefully examine case by case the particularities of each project.
The overland destinations are served with special licensed trucks that comply with the international rules and regulations. The movement of oversized cargoes throughout the world requires special types of containers such as flats, open top containers etc. Our company can select/propose which is the most suitable container type for each case and follow up all aspects of the transport chain until the cargo’s final overseas delivery. RO/RO transportation can also be handled by our personnel as an alternative solution when the cargo volume exceeds the conventional means of transport. Our commitment is to combine safety and quality in the most cost-effective way. View Photos
