Who We Are...

ALF Shipping can trace back its roots to Fort Shipping Ltd which is the oldest Off Shore Ship Manning Company in Sri Lanka which was established in 1981. The company was involved mainly in crew manning for Gas Tankers and Reefer Cargo Vessels. The company also handled ship flag administration as the Reefer Cargo vessels were registered under the Sri Lankan Flag.

Since the demand for manning of Reefer Cargo Vessels increased the Reefer Operators insisted for an agency in Sri Lanka to handle manning operations for Reefer Cargo Vessels. This decision paved the way for the creation of ALF Shipping (Pte) Ltd In 1997.


Mrs A Silva was with Fort Shipping Ltd since 1984 and is presently the Managing Director of ALF Shipping (Private) Limited. Mrs Ediriweera, Director - Personnel has served in the company since 1993.
