Services On Offer
The Puri Group /The Seaworld have a very strong liner shipping background of over four decades,
during which they have represented some of the largest liner companies in the world,
including APL/NOL, Contship, CP ships, Lykes Lines etc. (exclusive sales/booking of import/
export liner/ containerized cargo to/ from India and handling of containerized vessels as well
as all shore-based activities).
At one point in time, with their most aggressive, and yet responsible marketing efforts, the group was able to secure for each and every principal leading market share in almost all the major trade lanes e.g. India-USA, India-Europe, India-South East Asia and Far East, which resulted in their covering almost 20% of the entire Indian containerized liner traffic.
In the last decade, almost all major shipping lines have set up their own offices in India and this has had a serious adverse impact on all those involved in the liner shipping agency business. Seaworld were no different, but they were most certainly one of the last to be affected as even till 2007, they were, on behalf of CP Ships, handling, on an average, about a quarter million TEUs a year covering all major trade lanes. The disengagement with the lines represented has been amicable and Puri Group / Seaworld still continues their long standing association with these companies for other services.
Between 2012 and 2016 , Seaworld were the exclusive husbanding agents for Maersk Line, whom they still continue to serve for several on-shore activities, including documentation, at various Indian ports.
