About Us

In 1978, Robert L. Bohn arrived in Vanuatu and purchased a French cattle plantation named La Cressionaire.  Over the past 36 years, the Bohn family has lived and operated businesses in Vanuatu.

Robert L. Bohn’s grandson, Andrew formed Ocean Logistics Limited with Sean Griffin, a local businessman with 14 years of business and maritime industry experience in Vanuatu.  Two years later they joined forces with John Mashke, a retired Royal Australian Navy Captain with 30 years of sea going experience and expertise in ocean hydrography.  Ocean Logistics got its start by providing ocean transportation services between Port Vila, Luganville and throughout the islands.

We’ve grown to become Vanuatu’s foremost inter-island freight handling and transportation company. With its involved, dedicated and skilled people and fleet of barges, tugs, and shoreside equipment, it offers fast, frequent and reliable service to the ports of Port Vila on Efate, Luganville on Espiritu Santo, Torba Province, Sanma Province, Malampa and Shefa Province.
