We know West Africa

OBT Shipping was established in 2004 as a Shipping Agency and Logistics/Project Service provider with focus in West Africa. The aim is to provide ship owners and the local shipping environment, with a more reliable service to the steadily growing markets in the region. Today our main coverage area is West- and Central Africa with own offices located in Gambia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Cameroon. With our carefully selected and dedicated partners in the region, our representation today also includes full coverage in West and Central Africa via our hub agency. In the past few years the company has grown to include over 400 staff in the group, and is considered as one of the leading companies in West and Central Africa in the business.

OBT Shipping was founded by Danish professional shipping executives and our offices are mostly managed by Danish shipping people with long term experience in West Africa. Due to our Danish origins we have a commercial office in Copenhagen, and our head office is located in Switzerland. OBT Shipping is widely respected for our Scandinavian style of service, leadership and business conduct in general. Our Danish roots also provide a long tradition of shipping knowledge and a strong network to leading shipping owners, operators and worldwide companies.
