Our Company

Africa Port Services Ltd. is a privately owned shipping agency in West Africa with offices and services in all major Nigerian ports. Our proactive approach as a logistics service provider and dedication to excellence have contributed to our growth since APS was founded in 1999.

APS has vast experience in tramp shipping in all Nigerian ports but is the chosen partner of first class liner operators as well.

Besides shipping agency services, APS is the ideal local partner for a range of other activities such as clearing and forwarding, temporary importation and project logistics.

Africa Port Services was established by Arie ter Veen. His son, Pieter ter Veen, has been Managing Director of APS since 2007 and is still the main point of contact for any vessel and/or logistics operations under our care.

With offices in Lagos and Port Harcourt/Onne, APS can provide agency services in all Nigerian ports.
