By doing business since 1992 we established ABACUS as a watchword for reliability with customers and suppliers. The slogan of our trading philosophy are incorporated in our logo. We are FAIR, CREATIVE and EFFICIENT.

We employ our capabilities like dominoes, arranging them consistently and with careful consideration. Business partners – customers and shipping lines – are treated as people to whom we endeavour daily to give our best.

We collaborate with reliable, renowned shipping lines. Your enquiries and orders are handled with speed and efficiency with our advanced data processing facilities.
