Terminal Management

In September 2013, the FRS Group was granted a 25-year concession for the operation of the Albanian Ferry Terminal in the Port of Durrës. This is provided by the group’s subsidiary Albanian Ferry Terminal Operator (AFTO) on a 24/7 basis. The scope of work includes the management, operation and maintenance of the ferry terminal as well as quality management in accordance with best practice principles.

In order to increase the speed and efficiency of the processes, the check-in of cars, trucks and passengers is recorded and processed electronically. Other services include cargo handling of RoRo units of all types such as trucks, trailers and heavy machinery.

AFTO's management team is an international team responsible for day-to-day operation of the port as well as training, quality management and health, safety and environmental management (HSE) for the entire operational and administrative organization.
