About Augustea Group

Established in 1955 by Salvatore Cafiero in Naples, Italy, the Augustea Group is a provider of sea transportation services, which mainly operates in four business segments:

– dry bulk shipping;

– harbour towage;

– deep sea towing services;

– transportation with oceanic barges.

Under the control of the Cafiero-Zagari families, over the decades Augustea Group has grown to become a leading and reputable player in the shipping industry, with offices/operating branches in Naples and Augusta (Italy), London, Singapore, Malta, Buenos Aires, Philippines and Colombia.

As at the end of December 2014, Augustea employed more than 170 onshore people and more than 630 crewmembers, of whom more than 140 directly employed by the Group.

We have the ambition to build a sophisticated shipping firm to offer the best service we can to our first class customers, striving to work with the highest ethical standards and aiming to create value for our stakeholders.

Augustea’s operating philosophy is “Respect to the Seas”. It is strongly embedded in everything we do and we strongly adhere to a clear set of principles and values that support this philosophy.

Safety – protecting our best asset: the people that run our ships. A safe working environment is the basic building block upon which Augustea is built.

Efficiency – never leaving stones unturned. Being part of a logistical chain does not imply being passive. We always strive to see old and new challenges from different angles in order to still every single ounce of effectiveness by renewing and strengthening our fleet and by diversifying into related markets.

Trust – being part of the inner circle of our client. In today’s highly competitive world, our clients must feel we are fully on board with their everyday needs without ever compromising their information edge.

Drive to performance – always raising the bar of excellence. Only by constantly challenging ourselves to be better we can remain good.

Quality – Protecting our crews. Respecting the seas. Serving our clients. ISM, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations are testimony of our commitment to the total quality philosophy as a pre-requisite of long-term profitability.
