United Arab Shipping Company


Uasac was born in 2008, taking on board all the know-how, the skills and the experiences of  the Medmar/Finsea Group who has been  Uasc’s agent  for over 20 years.

It was soon been able to grow to a high level of reputation amongst its Principals and all throughout the Italian and international shipping world due to its sound professionalism, straightforwardness of approach and quality of performance.
Uasac is a streamlined and efficient, organization: strong in marketing and sales, well qualified and cost conscious in port operations and cargo handling,  responsible and precise in administration.
A well-staffed logistic department, cost and quality minded, strongly support our salesmen by making the most competitive inland tariffs available for trucking and rail combined containers' carriage. The containers move  throughout all Italy and port to port in the Med area, through feeder services. All our departments are motivated and coordinated by a dynamic, stimulating management.
A highly advanced EDI Centre enables them to adequately respond to both owners' and shippers' requirements: sales reporting and follow up, booking and planning, documentation, administration, inland logistic and container control.
Our accuracy and punctuality, particularly for the two latter sectors, result in a cost saving opportunity for the owner and equipment dependability for the cargo.


Uasac’s performance is guided by a "total quality" principle, which is the main objective, throughout all our organization together with a personal approach and dedication to all our customers. The Company is smooth running and effective in all its departments, thanks to their high professionalism and a well developed teamwork culture.
Uasac has always prioritized good customer service, as well as offering competitive freights.
