Abu Dhabi Shipping Agency (ADSA) was established in 1979,
by Late Mr. Salem Saif Saqer Al Meharbi , a prominent UAE local, originally as a Commercial Agency House, intent on providing a 'total package of freight solutions' to governmental, quasi-governmental departments and various trading houses in the city.
Over the years, the success of ADSA has witnessed rapid diversification and the introduction of other services such as: Liner Agency of major Internationally renowned Shipping Lines and Tramp Vessels, International Freight Forwarding by Air and Sea, Custom Clearance & Delivery, Project Cargo Forwarding & Handling, Business Moving, International & Local Removals, Fairs and Exhibition Logistic Services, Warehousing and Storage, General Cargo Sales Agency for Airlines & Self-Storage Facilities.
The total package concept was further enhanced by the appointment as Chief Agents of a major Indian Government-owned General Insurance Agency. Hence, the company is now in a position to offer its clients all major marine underwriting and general cargo cover, plus motor, personal accident & fire cover.
