About Ceylon Shipping Lines

Ceylon Shipping Lines Limited (CSL) was incorporated as a Private Limited Liability Company in 1954, as a joint venture between Norwegian and Swedish nationals, to conduct business as Ship Operators and Shipping Agents. In 1978 CSL became fully owned by the Government of Sri Lanka. The company was privatized in December 1992, with the Government of Sri Lanka continuing as a minority shareholder.

CSL today is at the pivot of a widely diversified and highly successful conglomerate. The Organization is rapidly progressing in the international arena, backed by its Global Agency Representation Network in over 20 countries.

The Company commands vast financial and human resources that have brought into focus a new horizon of opportunities to give CSL a competitive edge in the commercial world.
