History Supermaritime Group
In 1989 a ship-agency group under the management of International Inspection and Control Company SGS was formed by opening Marine Agency offices in Nigeria and Ghana. In the years that followed the agency group steadily built its network in West-Africa and beyond. Through a management buy-out the current management acquired the company’s assets in 1997, and renamed it Supermaritime Group. The senior management has since expanded the company extensively, and has maintained the highest standards that were so customary for its one-time Swiss owners.
Throughout our history, the Supermaritime group has focused on creating new value in the Maritime and Logistics industries. Our core competencies; Marine Agencies, Local Transportation Solutions and Freight Forwarding Services are built from successfully integrating some of the industry’s best resources and competencies into a cohesive global entity. Supermaritime has in the past 10 years expanded its office network to encompass over 35 offices in 17 countries. Our global team of over 350 Marine Agency and Logistics experts shows a high level of staff retention and takes pride in providing our customers with the best practices available over a variety of specialized industries. In 2005 the group obtained ISO 9001-2000 quality certification, which has since been re-certified to include ISO 9001-2008 certification. Supported by its Microsoft Dynamics ‘Axapta’ operating system the group is able to competently administratively manage its complex international operations.
