Chahaya Shipping & Trading Co., Pte Ltd was established in 1975 by Mr Steven SL Kwek, the managing director of the company and has its roots traced back to Indonesia. Chahaya started as a shipping agent, forwarder, and cargo and shipping broker in ports of Southeast Asia. The extensive networking and coverage in the regional shipping industry allowed the company to forge strong relationships and gain good support from both exporters out of Indonesia and traders within South East Asia. , Chahaya expanded to owning, and operating ships in 1992 to serve our customers’ ocean transportation needs in the Southeast Asia region. To compliment our core business, Chahaya also started offering a full set of shipping services which includes freight forwarding, shipping agency, brokerage and ship management services.
In the years following 1994, Chahaya took a step out of our trading area and ventured into the Pacific waters, operating tankers and container ro-ro vessels with our Australian partners. During this period, Chahaya was also appointed the agent of the National Line of Indonesian, PT PELNI to serve the national line’s commercial and technical operations in Singapore.
