Our Story

Establishment of Melita Shipping Agency
Established in 1996, Melita Shipping Agency represents a pioneering venture in the Libyan maritime sector, marking the inception of the nation's first private shipping entity in an era dominated by public sector affiliations. Our maiden venture embarked on a groundbreaking journey, facilitating direct container shipments from Dubai to Libyan ports, a novel endeavor at the time. This initial success paved the way for an innovative expansion into automobile transportation, leveraging the Iranian Shipping Line (IRISL) to transport vehicles in containers from Korea to Libya during the period of 1996 to 2000.
Zueitina Shipping Agency
As the new millennium dawned, we ventured into a new chapter with the formation of Zueitina Shipping Agency. From 2000 to 2005, this venture symbolized our strategic expansion, operating directly with the Iranian line from the Far East and Dubai, connecting the vibrant markets of Asia with the entirety of Libyan ports. This era was marked by our commitment to bridging continents and fostering international trade links.
Al-Waha Shipping Agency
In 2006, Al-Waha Shipping Agency was born, marking another milestone in our journey. This venture saw us becoming the exclusive agent for P&O Nedlloyd, then the second largest shipping line globally. This partnership was a testament to our growing prominence and influence in the maritime industry, extending our reach and capabilities.
Tajoura Shipping Agency
The year 2008 heralded the establishment of Tajoura Shipping Agency, in collaboration with Jaliana maritime shipping company. With operational bases in Dubai and China, this joint venture, in cooperation with the shipping line CMA, represented a quantum leap in our operational capacity. We masterminded the transportation of thousands of diverse containers from the bustling ports of China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, directly to Libyan shores. This period was characterized by our ability to navigate the complex tapestry of global trade routes, bringing the world closer to Libya.
