100 Years in Shipping
Originally established in 1915, the Chandris Fleet operated throughout the 1920s, 1930s and up until the Second World War. In the 1950s and 1960s embarked on an active new building program in order to rebuild its fleet.
In this period, Chandris (Hellas) Inc. became the fleet’s main managing company and by the 1980s, the average number of ships ranged between 20 to 30 with an average size of 1.2-1.5 million dead weight tones (DWT)
In 1997 Chandris (Hellas) Inc. went back to the Newbuilding yards in order to renew and enlarge its fleet with top tier yards in South Korea and Japan. By 2011, the Company had expanded by more than 300% of the Company’s total DWT and by 2013 Chandris (Hellas) Inc. successfully oversaw and managed 26 technologically advanced Newbuildings
Today Chandris (Hellas) Inc. manages close to 3 million dead weight tons (DWT). The vessels fly the Hellenic (and other) Flags and have multinational crews.
Our noble goal, the “pursuit of excellence”, which leads to continual improvement and drives the day-to-day operations has been praised by our customers who consistently honor Chandris (Hellas) Inc. with mutually beneficial business contracts.
