Asyad provides its global customers with unique, integrated, end-to-end logistics solutions, market leading incentives and an ever-expanding range of services across the value chain. The Group offers various services include maritime transportation of Crude Oil, LNG, Chemical Products, Dry Bulk and Container. This includes ship owning, ship chartering and technical ship management activities.

Quality and ISO Standards

From the outset of its launch, Asyad has sought to achieve the highest standards of Quality, Health, Safety and the Environment (QHSE) by incorporating the principles of sustainable development across its business activities. QHSE safeguards are embedded in the company’s business processes. They are also made obligatory for Asyad employees, including its crew, shore staff, contracted personnel, and others who may be associated with the company’s operations in any way.

Given this robust adherence to internationally benchmarked QHSE standards, it’s no surprise then that Asyad continues to enjoy an unblemished track record with regard to Health, Safety and the Environment."

ISO Standards

In line with this commitment, Asyad Shipping was recently certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). The company also performed exceptionally well in the Tanker Management Self-Assessment Audit (TMSA), among other best practices prescribed for the shipping industry.
