Vessel Management

Within the maritime industry in Nigeria there are many existing conflicts of interest between owners and agencies. As an independent company, we can provide an autonomous operation tailored to the needs of the client.

Oil and Gas Industry: Over the last fifteen years, this has been a growing industry in Nigeria and there is an increasing need for dedicated professional logistics support operators. As a specialist logistics operator we are able to provide the full range of support services plus a high level of customer service to the oil service sector in this region.

We also provide:

  • A database of all major exporters and export commodities in relevant trade sectors.
  • Project/customer leads and general information 
  • After sales customer service, 
  • Fullscale public relations also catered for: 
  • Accommodation and transport as required.
  • Attendance at airports to assist all company personnel transiting Nigeria.
  • Our sales force have an excellent reputation for market knowledge,  approachability and friendliness.


  • Airfreight forwarding services can be supplied on a global scale. Together with our overseas partners we are able to move freight between Nigeria and almost any location worldwide, professionally, safely and swiftly.

In an increasing competitive market, this is an area that is considered crucial to maintain and increase clients’ market share in represented trade lines.

The local sales and marketing activity may include:

  • Advertising in national trade and appropriate local press mediums.
  • Product branding.
  • Corporate entertainment
  • Local sponsorship, where appropriate.
  • Participation in trade events.

At SMLS we run an automated reporting system whereby we keep our client abreast of clearing proceedings and progress of their shipment without the client calling. This is viewed as a matter of serious policy in the company not to hoard situation reports to clients.

Ultimately your success is our joy…
