Ocean Trade & Logistics (Pvt) Ltd., was presented with a coveted Excellence Award in the export sector at the National Business Excellence awards ceremony organized by the National Chamber of Commerce. The gala event was held recently at the Colombo Hilton Hotel. Having been founded by Sudesh Mendis, MD, with exporting goods worth just US$100 to the Maldives, Ocean Trade & Logistics have come a long way to enhance its capacity not only as a leading exporter operating regularly on Sea & Air, but also venturing into many other fields. The company created history last year by exporting the highest number of containers to the Maldives from Sri Lanka. Ocean Trade & Logistic (Pvt) Ltd., is special in that all their exports are under the company’s supervision to ensure damage free safe transportation at a reasonable price to the Maldives.

Ocean Trade & Logistics has now come a step forward to manufacture and export their own products. The company exports cow dung and compost to the Maldives under the brand names OTL COWDUNG and UGROW. They have also obtained the agency to export compost under the brand name UNI GROW. Ocean Trade & Logistic has earned a reputation as the number one seller of the best compost that is ideal for the soil in the Maldives. The significance of this venture is the fact that Ocean Trade & Logistic brings in 100% foreign exchange by exporting a product manufactured with 100% local raw material. The manufacturing plant located at Dambadeniya has generated a large number of job opportunities to the villagers. In addition, the company grows and exports fruits such as pineapples and vegetables. Ocean Trade & Logistics’ business portfolio includes exporting and transporting Lime tissue, organic fertilizers, Alaella Tea, building material and all supplies for hotels and resorts.
