S. C. Sehgal
After saying good bye to sailing, Mr. Sehgal served ashore with Univan Shipmanagement, Hongkong from 1979-1984 (as a Technical Superintendent in Hongkong office for over a year and for nearly four years in Mumbai office as General Manager, crewing).
Mr. Sehgal had a vision to make India as a third party ship management hub similar to Hongkong. As such he shook hands with Univan Ship Management Hongkong and established his own identity by incorporating SNP Ship Management & Consultation Bureau in 1984 and SNP Shipping Services Pvt. Ltd. in 1992 at Mumbai, India. Considering the business of third party ship management services as unpredictable, Mr. Sehgal was very keen to join hands with those shipowners who were looking for third party services to manage their vessels in totality on permanent and exclusive terms.
Finally Mr. Sehgal’s search for prudent businessmen was over in year 1984 when he was successful in negotiating a desired contract with a group of commodity traders who were looking forward to acquire second hand dry cargo vessels for carriage of their in- house cargoes. The contract included sale purchase of vessels, vessels insurance, crew and Technical management of ships, Pre and Post fixtures follow up and fleet accounting. To start with, looking at the need of the hour second hand tonnage of tween dockers, SD-14 vessels, Freedom class vessels were inducted into the fleet which were slowly replaced by handy size, handy max and presently the group is operating modern tonnage of Panamax, Supramax and Kamsarmax vessels.
