Distinguished Past

Chellaram Shipping can trace its roots back to Chennai, India where in 1916 the Late Kishinchand Chellaram, founder of the Group, established a textile business. This was to provide the cornerstone for development of a formidable International Trading Organisation with 50 branches spread across four continents.

Mr. Lal L. Chellaram, the Chairman, set up the Shipping business in Hong Kong in 1979 and within a short period the Company started to manage three new vessels. Gradually more vessels were added and today Chellaram Shipping manages a large fleet of modern and versatile dry-bulk carriers from Handysize to Kamsarmax size vessels, and a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger.

Our heritage has been successfully built on the principles of Quality, Reliability and Integrity.
