Shipping to Benin

We have been connecting Beninese businesses with key global markets since 1991.

Whether you need to import or export machinery, refrigerated cargo or standard container shipments, our teams of specialists are dedicated to ensuring you have the optimal transport solution. We provided regular connections to and from Cotonou. From here, the rest of the world is just a short hop away with our vast ocean fleet.

Full inland service

Shipping is not just about ships. Most cargo also needs to be transported inland, often at both ends of its journey. With a comprehensive inland services network, we provide you with direct connections to inland destinations across Africa. If you wish, we can even pick up your goods from your production site and deliver them safely to their final destination – wherever in the world that happens to be.

Dedicated customer service

Our multilingual customer service team is dedicated to helping you increase the simplicity, efficiency and reliability of your supply chain – while making sure that your cargo arrives in perfect condition. And, to make your shipping even easier and more cost-effective, we provide a full suite of e-commerce solutions that speed up your processes and save you time.

To serve our Nigerien customers effectively, we also have an office in Niamey.
