PELIAS performs fumigation services in accordance with security measures established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Gafta Trade Assurance Scheme (GTAS), and International Maritime Fumigation Organization (IMFO).
Fumigation is the process of releasing toxic gases (pesticides) into a cargo hold or compartment for the purpose of eliminating or avoiding infestation by insects or other pests that may cause the cargo to deteriorate.
At PELIAS, our clients rely on our services for preventing damage to goods from common pests. Working in ports and logistics centers, our fumigation services focus mainly on treating cargo containers on sea-going vessels with aluminum phosphide, one of the most commonly used pesticides. We adhere to all national and international rules and regulations governing fumigation services and we are committed to customer satisfaction via quality outcomes.
