Indian ocean shipping was established in 1994 by Joseph D’souza  as a local clearing and forwarding agency, then when it was later  to service the ever growing trade to East and Central Africa. Over the last 12 years the company has steadily grown to one of the leading consolidators of groupage cargo to the main East African  ports. Over the years we have built a reputation for total neutrality with many forwarders and overseas agents entrusting their shipments to Indian ocean shipping, safe in the knowledge that their customer will stay their customer.

Operating as an NVOCC  we are able to provide LCL and FCL to all parts of East Africa  at very competitive rates. Due to the large volume of containers we ship as an NVOCC we are able to offer real value to our customers, offering various methods of routing the shipment by the most cost effective port, whilst still maintaining excellent transit times.   

Our Goal is to provide excellence in any service we offer, employing staff who all have a wealth of knowledge in the area they cover and many years experience in shipping. Likewise we only work with agents who have a similar company policy so that if you encounter a problem, which can happen in international trade, you can be sure that we will work to resolve it quickly and efficiently.
