Company History - South India Shipping Corporation
YEAR                       EVENTS
 1964 - The Company was incorporated on 22nd January, at Chennai. 
 The
        main object of the company is World - wide tramping and
 coastal
        trading.

        shares were offered to the public.

        equity shares issued in prop. 1:2.
 
 1986 - Increase in income achieved by way of savings in operating 
        expenditure and sale of m.v. Chennai Ookkam for scrapping,
 was
        neutralised by a rise in rates of port and canal expenses and
        increase in depreciation charges by virtue of two ships
 operating
        throughout the year.
 
      - The increase in freight rates was in all sectors of trade that
  
        the company was interested in.  A total number of 265 days
 were
        lost by the company's vessels at various ports of the world
 of
        which berthing delays accounted for 160 days, dry-docking and
        repairs for 94 days and miscellaneous delays for 11 days. 
 The
        rise in the freight rates in general was attributed to
        substantial scrapping of old tonnage till about September and
        declining orders for new ship building.
 
      - The overall sea-borne trade was not reported to have shown any
 
        significant improvement.  As the leading ship building
 nations
        viz., Japan and Korea, were not reported to have contracted
 for
        any significant orders for new buildings mainly due to
        strengthening of the Yen and Won, particularly against the
        Dollar, the firmness in the freight rates was expected to
        continue for some more time.
 
 1987 - The company also had bid for two sister ships of m.v. ATHOS,
 the
        offer of which were withdrawn.  Three months later, one of
 them
        m.v. PORTHOS was again offered for sale at U.S. .5 million
 as
        against the original offer of U.S. $ 11 million.

 was 
        the same as that in the previous year.  The volume of cargo
        carried on voyage and time charter during the year.
 
      - The average duration per voyage also increased from 56 days in
 
        the previous year to 67 days due to long delays in ports.
 
 1989 - The company took delivery of m.v. ATHOS and m.v. PORTHOS and 
        renamed them as m.v. Chennai Perumai and m.v. Chennai Ookkam,
        respectively.
 
 1991 - Despite recession that prevailed in the shipping industry
 during    
        the first half of the period, the overall performance was
        satisfactory, mainly owing to better capacity utilisation and
        quicker turn around of ships at most ports.  The company
 operated
        1218 ship days.
 
      - The company acquired one of Essars bulk carriers m.v. NAND
