Essar Shipping has been part of the first few chapters of Essar’s legacy. With over 4 decades of experience in owning and operating maritime assets, the company has managed immense scale as an Indian private sector shipping company. The company is engaged in deploying its assets in the spot markets, COA’s (Contracts of Affreightment) and long-term contracts. 

Pioneering with a sense of responsibility forms the core of the company, with paperless navigation, fitting scrubbers on-board, and Green Passports being few of the many initiatives Essar Shipping has taken to foster sustainable business. The Company also operates an oil & gas drilling business that provides contract drilling services to oil & gas companies across the globe. This business owns a fleet of land and offshore rigs.
