Ocean Liner Services

About Us

Ocean Liner Services is part of a group of integrated logistics and marine service focussed companies. The group evolved from the humble beginnings of the only vessel agent in Walvis Bay in 1924 to Namibia's leading logistics company. Ocean Liner Services was officially established in 2005 in order to refocus the group's existing liner and non-liner port agency services into a single service offering.
