Chellaram Shipping can trace its roots back to Madras, 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 current Group 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.
Our heritage has been successfully built on the principles of Quality, Reliability and Integrity.
Chellaram Shipping believes that commercial success must be founded on social responsibility and is, therefore, pleased to support charitable causes – with a sense of oneness between the Company and the recipients.
Its associated Chellaram Foundation established Chellaram Diabetes Institute (CDI) in Pune, India as a not-for-profit initiative having state-of-the-art Clinical & Diagnostic facilities and in-patient care, with the principal objective of creating a lasting IMPACT on Diabetes scenario in Inida. The Institute also operates Mobile Diabetes Clinics in the rural areas to support the under privileged villagers; over 50,000 of whom have been screened for Diabetes free of cost in more than 500 villages around Pune and Ahmed Nagar.
