Ship owning in its simplest terms is the having the ownership of a vessel or vessels or having a stake in them. An important part of the Ship Owning activity is ensuring that the owned vessels have all the necessary compliances and statutory certification as per International Rules. In addition, the criteria for local laws in the intended region of deployment is required to be complied with.
Transworld Group owns a fleet of vessels which are Indian and Panama flagged. The fleet consists of container vessels ranging in capacity from 700 TEUs to 4360 TEUs and handy size geared bulk carriers. The fleet is deployed in the Americas and in the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent regions.
The Group has seen a rapid growth in its fleet size in recent years both in terms of numbers and vessel size. The acquisition of new build tonnage has effectively reduced the average age of the fleet to under 15 years.
Specialist Ship Management is a service oriented activity in which ship maintenance and management, both in terms of manpower and technical requirements, is undertaken by a 3rd party who is neither the vessel owner nor the commercial operator of the vessel. The Ship Management companies are under contractual obligation to manage and maintain the vessels under their care and provide the detailed technical management to keep them operating efficiently.
