Our history

In 1965, Michel and Henri Daron founded S.A.M. in Bordeaux, a company specialized in shipchandling for the greater southwest region of France.

Very quickly, an export division was started up to supply its sister company, S.A.M. CONGO.
In the 1990s, the firm’s commitment to developing exports was confirmed with the arrival of Christophe DARON.

The firm then expanded its customer base to include supermarkets, importers and wholesalers, institutional caterers and embassies, and extended its geographical zone to include all of Africa. S.A.M. took on the name Oleron Export in 1998, then OLEX in 2016.

One of the foundation stones of the Daron Shipchandler network of firms.
Profiting from its 58 years of experience, the company today is developing its business activities on other continents.
