Chairman's Message.

Welcome to the Bangladesh Ocean Going Ship Owners’ Association (BOGSOA). BOGSOA commenced its journey in 1989 as an alliance of local shipowners intending to build concordance among its stakeholders. Our core objective is to ensure mutual trust among all of our partners and safeguard our shipping industry. We have been flourishing for over the last three decades and consistently representing various interests of shipping companies of Bangladesh. This association also operates as a hub of organizations that is bridging the gap between local shipping companies and the general public. BOGSOA seeks to fortify the sustainable status quo for its members at the international platform. As a whole, we are working towards providing state of the art facilities in terms of management, transportation, connectivity, security, and technology. I believe this web portal will be resourceful to our members since it is designed to convey information in the most sophisticated way. Concomitantly, it is a guide to newcomers so that they can unite with us spontaneously and enrich the shipping industry of Bangladesh.
