Stellar Reputation

Get to know us

C&V Caribbean Shipping Limited (C&V Shipping) is one of the most recognised and reputable shipping agencies in Guyana. Our managing owners Frankie Camacho, Richard Van Sluytman and Jennifer Prashad bring a combined total of 90+ years’ experience in the Shipping Industry. This experience reaches across generations and spans the beginning of the industry to present day.

For more than 30 years, C&V Shipping has been renowned for its efficient service and communication capabilities. Our reputation is built on a foundation of strong relationships, knowledge sharing and continuous capacity building. We take pride in ensuring that our diverse team is equipped with the necessary tools to respond efficiently and professionally to cover all your shipping and logistics needs.

Our journey to becoming one of the leading shipping agencies started generations ago when Frankie and Captain Richard began working in their respective family businesses. Frankie worked as the Accountant and Wharf Manager at M.P Camacho Limited started by his great grandfather. Meanwhile, the young Captain Richard was master of his own vessel at Van Sluytman & Partners which was started by his grandfather and relatives.

Together Frankie and Captain Richard learnt the diverse skills they would need to start their own shipping agency in 1987. Through the years Frankie and Captain Richard have built a solid reputation for C&V Shipping by using one of the most effective strategies – consistently providing sound, reliable and efficient services. Today, their wealth of knowledge has been shared with the agency’s younger team members who are poised to support the growth of C&V Shipping into the future.

Our Mission

C&V Caribbean Shipping Limited’s mission is to deliver first-class service and provide end-to-end solutions for all your logistics and shipping needs.

Continuous knowledge sharing and capacity building are at the heart of how we pursue our mission. We provide an environment focused on growth and development for our team. This continues to be a key element of our success in delivering unrivalled service to our principals and end customers.
