Ship Owners and Agents Association of Ghana


Ship-owners and Agencies operating in Ghana have worked in an uncoordinated manner in the past. The results were that shipping and related activities were beset with numerous problems. In a bid to provide a strong and well-structured network, the ship-owners and Agents Association of Ghana (SOAAG) was formed as a facilitator that would provide a comprehensive and unified front to ensure a successful business and peaceful co-existence in the maritime industry.

SOOAG was incorporated as an Association on April 23, 1993 and has the ultimate aim of providing a conducive operating climate that is responsive to Owners and Agents as well as other related institutions in the maritime industry in Ghana.


  1. To provide a central organization in the country for companies and corporations engaged in the shipping business and to seek the welfare and protect the interest of the members of the association;   
  2. To present a unified front to the authorities in all matters of shipping;
  3. To protect the interest of members principals in line with the internationally established rules and regulations of the industry;
  4. To facilitate the exchange and dissemination of information and views on customs, shipping, transportation and cargo management/handling procedures and practices;
  5. To contribute our quota to the economy through the medium of shipping.
