Shipping to, from and within the Indian subcontinent

With more than 20% of the world’s total population, the countries of the Indian subcontinent comprise a rapidly expanding economic region, rich in agricultural and mineral resources. 

And, led by India, one of the world’s fastest growing economies, the region is increasing in significance in the global economy.

From our offices across the region, we provide regular and comprehensive shipping services to, from and across the Indian subcontinent connecting you to your key markets and trading partners in the Far East, the Middle East, Northern and Southern Africa, Europe and the Mediterranean.

Connecting the Indian Ocean Islands

The economies of the remote Indian Ocean Islands rely on ocean shipping to thrive, traditionally exporting raw materials and importing manufactured goods. With regular services to, from and within the region, we connect the Indian Ocean Islands to companies, distributors and retailers around the globe.

Intermodal services

Shipping is not just about ships. Most cargo also needs to be transported inland, often at both ends of its journey. That’s why we offer extensive intermodal services to connect you with inland locations across the Indian subcontinent and the world.

If you wish, we can even take care of your cargo for its entire journey, from pick up through to delivery.

Local expertise

Whether you need to import or export, our team of local and international specialists work with you to ensure you get the optimal shipping solution for your cargo – whatever its destination.
