More than just ships’ stores

Ships chandlers willing to go the extra mile

In addition to food, bonded stores, technical provisions and marine chemicals, the Altham team is happy to meet more unusual requests – yes, a nightdress for the captain’s wife, gifts for a forgotten birthday… are some of the recent emergencies that we have responded to!

“A nightdress for the captain’s wife?  No problem!”

From the smallest to the largest requisition, Altham’s chandlery team will always ensure that we source the right ships’ stores, taking into account different budgets, nationalities, ship sizes and time limitations.

Complete flexibility – saving you time, money and paperwork

Everyday Altham’s meets the needs of ships, their captains and crew.  Operating a 24 hour ships’ stores service, we are well aware of the importance of teamwork so we ensure that we have a framework of good relationships – with the ships and their management, and also with Port Authorities, Ships Agents, Freight Forwarders, HM Revenue & Customs and others. This ensures that Altham’s turnaround time is swift, efficient, that all regulations are met and complied with and that we are able to respond to the diverse nature of our customers’ requirements. Fast online ordering is now available.
