Advantis Marine, the marine services arm of Hayleys Advantis Limited, offered end-to-end port side logistics support to the USS Frank Cable (AS-40) submarine tender vessel during its recent refueling and port visit to Sri Lanka. Advantis provided all port agency and husbandry services to the vessel while it was berthed at the East Container Terminal of the Colombo Port from August 29 to September 1.
Keeping in mind the security requirements of such a vessel, the Advantis Marine team stepped in well before its arrival, barricading off and managing access to the designated port area. Once berthed, they managed everything from crew changes to provision of supplies for both the ship and its crew to waste removal from the vessel. They also handled ground transportation requirements for the crew, providing shuttle services for their regular visits to the city as well as guides and vehicles for their excursions to other parts of the island.
