Cameroun comes from Mount Cameroun, which in the original Portuguese was "Monte dos Camarões" (meaning mountain of shrimps).

Cameroun Shipping Lines (aka CAMSHIP) was created in 1974 during the First Republic of Cameroon (1960-1982) with the purchase of six cargo ships. CAMSHIP and the Council of Charterers were later restructured and CAMSHIP was privatized in 1999 following recommendations by the World Bank.
