Welcome to Safmarine India Local Home Page.

Safmarine is extremely active in the Indian shipping trade and is a leading carrier from J.N.Port to the Mediterranean, Europe and Africa and North America. In fact, Safmarine (then known as CMBT) was one of the first container shipping lines to call at the high-tech port of Nhava Sheva since its inception in 1989 and has been a consistent user and a promoter of the port.

Safmarine India was established in 1992 (it was then known as CMB-T Agencies India Pvt.Ltd) to cater to the growing needs of the line in India. Safmarine India was a success right from its inception and was instrumental in building up a successful brand image for Safmarine in India. Within a short period of time, Safmarine India spread its wings to major cargo locations in India, thereby widening its market base. The agency has always been in the forefront of delivering top quality service to its clients. In 1997 the agency was accredited with the ISO 9002 Certificate by BVQI which is to be renewed for this year.

Leading multinational companies like General Motors, Owens Corning, Penny's Primark, Coin/Standa, Panalpina and Fiat India ship their cargoes through Safmarine India Pvt.Ltd. Over the years, Safmarine India has diversified into related activities and currently offers a gamut of shipping services to its customers. The company presently operates a transportation division and a container repair and storage yard.

Octopus Projects and Shipping Pvt Ltd was established in 1994 with the object of handling the growing inland haulage and project transportation requirements of the shipping trade in Mumbai and neighbouring commercial centres. They operate a fleet of trailers for transportation of containers and project cargo.
Express Repair Services Pvt Ltd is the container storage and repair arm of the group. The yard is situated in Shirdhon, near Panvel and covers an area of 13 acres. This is a state-of-the-art container repair yard and offers top quality repairs to its clients.
Safmarine India is manned by professionals and has within its ranks an aggressive and customer oriented team that can deliver results. All our staff members are highly motivated, target focused individuals who are equipped to meet the changing needs of the market place.

All activities of the Safmarine India Group are focused towards offering a one-stop shop for customers and we believe that this philosophy would help us in tackling the changing face of global shipping in the coming years.
