Our Services

More than 20 years of successful business and constant development made Alpha Osta a leader among Baltic bulk cargo transshipment facilities. It operates a state of the art terminal in the Free Port of Riga with modern equipment and deep-dredge berths which allow it to handle various types and sizes of ships from small coasters with 1500 mt capacity to Panamax-size bulk carriers with capacity up to 70,000 mt.
