About us

Since the foundation of Naves S.A.S. in 1986, the company has prevailed in an environment of constant change and hard competition, based on professionalism, expertise and permanent updating, providing services to assist the charter vessels, Liner and tanker vessels in Colombia. 

We have approximately 180 employees in Colombia, supporting the different Business Units of the Group like Ship Agency, Commercial Representations of Maritime Lines, Logistics Business (warehousing, freight forwarding, inland transportation, tracking and expediting services), Oil & Gas Onshore and Offshore Projects and Globaldesk.

The main office of Naves is located in Bogota and we have branch offices located in the main ports of the country (Barranquilla, Buenaventura, Cartagena, Coveñas, Santa Marta and Puerto Bolivar, and additional supporting branch offices in Cali and Medellin). 

In 2007 the Ultramar Group from Chile, being the biggest Shipping Group in Latin America, acquired a majority stake in Naves, and since then Naves in Colombia has continued to grow and evolve in providing maritime, ports and industrial logistics services.
