We know West Africa

OBT Shipping was established in Sierra Leone in 2004. Our aim is to provide ship owners and the local shipping environment in general with a more reliable service to the steadily growing markets in the region. Our main coverage area is West Africa, and with our dedicated partners in the region our representation also includes sub-agents all over West Africa . In the past few years the company has grown to include over 300 staff in the group.

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.
