UAL thinblueWAVE-76


UAL Alliance consists of the dedicated shipping line, Universal Africa Lines Ltd. (UAL Ltd.), as well as several agents under the UAL brand name. UAL Ltd. is a global shipping line that has serviced the Oil & Gas industry from Europe and America to West Africa for over 40 years.
Its main focus is on complete logistic management (involving both break bulk and containers) from Europe and from the US Gulf to West Africa (vice versa).

UAL is offering intra-African service on the west coast of Africa. UAL operates a fleet of multi-purpose vessels. These vessels are geared, which means they can load and discharge cargo using their own cranes.

UAL’s customers are paramount to us and they can rely on fast, flexible and professional service provided by experts. UAL offers their clients decades of focused experience, technical expertise and commercial awareness, combined with European and American management, inclusive local knowledge. Through constant dedication and hard work, UAL Alliance builds on strong business relationships and mutual trust between their global customers and their partners.

True to our mission to provide reliable service, UAL re-acted to rising customer demand for an alternative, experienced carrier, between Houston and Latin America/Caribbean (vice versa) and launched a new independent line – UAL Universal Americas Lines.
