about Us

OUR company

HSL S.C. was established in 1996 in the commercial heart of Piraeus through the merging together of Lesvos Maritime S.C. and Theometor S.C., two of the leading shipping companies trading between Greece and East Mediterranean during the 70s. In its long history over the years the company has owned and operated more than 20 general cargo vessels up to 1,000 register tonnage in East Mediterranean seven of which were operated simultaneously during the 90s. Therefore, its experience is unique in the full essence of how to run shortsea general cargo vessels. It is able to offer a range of ship management and marine transportation services, including crew manning and operational services. Hellenic Sea Lines currently operates a modern fleet of general cargo vessels with Greek Flag and classed with major IACS Classification Societies. It is a well-established player in the field and has the capacity, experience and aspirations to further expand depending on market conditions.

OUR strengths
We are a 5th generation of shipowners and hence shipping is our family tradition.

The last 200 years several skills and ownership knowledge have been developed and passed on from father to son in Gogis family, deriving from the island of Lesvos, Greece.

Our strength is that the family tradition and valuable shipping knowledge have been reserved.

Cp. Ioannis Gogis carries an average of 45 years of experience in the shipping industry and has learned how to handle even the most challenging situations. He is working with his posterity – Michail, Efthimios and Anastasia Gogi –who are all highly qualified both academically and professionally for over 15 years (scroll down for more information).

Our aim is to add to this shipping tradition, to pursue new business opportunities and pass it on to next generations.
It’s difficult to find the same level of trust, teamwork, holistic skills and experience that you receive at Hellenic Sea Lines SC from other companies in the shipping industry. We’re on call 24/7 to make sure that when a problem arises, there’s someone available to solve it.
