Miko Marine, a global pioneer in marine salvage, provides swift solutions for vessel emergencies, offering both standard tools and customised offerings. Leveraging their proven patch technology and extensive salvage experience, Miko Marine provides the necessary equipment and expertise for temporary yet dependable hull repairs while the ship remains afloat.

One of Miko Marine's most well-known and patented innovations is its magnetic FlexiShape Miko Plaster, which is a quick and effective solution for enhancing marine preparedness and salvage services at sea, especially in remote and challenging locations without immediate rescue services. With its versatile properties and ability to seal off almost any leakage, this product has played a crucial role in preventing vessels from sinking and limiting water damage during emergencies such as groundings and collisions at sea.

ASCO's dedicated team of logistics experts remains available 24/7 to support the rapid deployment of Miko Marine's life-saving products worldwide, wherever, and whenever the need arises.

Morten Nevland, Director of Freight Management for ASCO in Norway, and leader of ASCO's Gardermoen team, expresses his appreciation, stating: "We consider ourselves fortunate to collaborate with Miko Marine and their exceptional team. Our collaboration and success exemplify how we at ASCO tailor our services to meet our customer needs. We are dedicated and passionate to serve our customers' challenges with precision, professionalism, and an unwavering commitment to service excellence."

Their team of logistics professionals and dedicated freight forwarders plays a pivotal role in enabling Miko Marine to deliver lifesaving products to our valued customers worldwide, every single day. I am deeply grateful for the outstanding support from the ASCO team at Gardermoen and their unparalleled service delivery. Together, we form an exceptional team."
