About Us

Welcome to CTR, your trusted partner for seamless logistics solutions. At CTR, we pride ourselves on our commitment to excellence and our dedication to providing premier shipping, transportation, customs clearance and freight forwarding services.

CTR Sarl, a maritime consignment agency, was created in 2009 by Mr. Etienne GNAVO in Cotonou, in the Republic of Benin, and has since expanded with branches in Lomé (Togo),Tema and Takoradi (Ghana). The agency was created in response to increased demand in the local market, compounded by piracy attacks in Beninese waters. As a result, shipowners and charterers sought refuge in Togolese waters for greater safety. CTR Sarl quickly adapted and reopened its Lomé port branch in 2011 to meet the needs of shipowners.

Specializing in harbor assistance services for tankers (oil tankers, gas and chemical product carriers), CTR Sarl has become an internationally renowned company. The agency prioritizes the safety and security of vessels and crews and serves large international companies, operators, charterers and shipowners. With independent offices in Cotonou, Lomé and Tema with extension to Takoradi, the agency offers technical and administrative support 24/7.

CTR Sarl prides itself on reliability, competence and innovation, emphasizing its commitment to quality service, competitive rates and overall efficiency. The agency operates through a well-connected network of reliable agents worldwide. With a dedicated team with expertise in maritime consignment, shipping agency and related services, CTR Sarl ensures a fast and flexible organizational approach. The agency is distinguished by the principle “My word is my bond”, thus underlining its reputation as a trustworthy business partner for a diverse clientele.
