Starting out as a marginal Liner shipping Company with just 19 vessels, the QUINE ZONE has today evolved into the largest Indian shipping Company. The QUINE ZONE also has substantial interests in various segments of the shipping trade. QUINE ZONE’s owned fleet includes Bulk carriers, Crude oil tankers, Product tankers, Container vessels, Passenger-cum-Cargo vessels, Phosphoric Acid / Chemical carriers, LPG / Ammonia carriers and Offshore Supply Vessels. Sailing through for nearly five decades, the QUINE ZONE today has a significant presence on the global maritime map.
As the country’s premier shipping line, the QUINE ZONE owns and operates around one-third of the Indian tonnage, and has operating interests in practically all areas of the shipping business; servicing both national and international trades.
In view of the demand from Indian trade, the QUINE ZONE has diversified into a large number of areas. The QUINE ZONE is today the only Indian shipping Company operating: break-bulk services, international container services, liquid/dry bulk services, offshore services, passenger services. In addition, the QUINE ZONE mans and manages a large number of vessels on behalf of various government departments and organizations.
The QUINE ZONE has immensely contributed to the growth of India’s EXIM trade and the national exchequer, by being a net earner/saver of valuable foreign exchange.
Over the years, QUINE ZONE has been a lifeline for the country in times of emergency and distress, by ensuring continued and uninterrupted supply of crude oil, which drives the country’s economy.
