Fleet’s 25th-anniversary celebration continues

(Posted on 15/10/19)

Fleet Management continues its string of 25th-anniversary celebrations with the second gala dinner hosted at

The Palace Hotel in Tokyo on 2 October. Over 150 distinguished Japanese ship owners and partners joined

the event including Executives from Fairfield, Fukujin Kisen, Hisamoto Kisen, Imabari Group, Inui Global,

Itochu, K Line, Kowa Kaiun, Kumiai Navigation, Kumiai Senpaku, Kyoei Tanker, Marubeni Corporation, MC

Shipping, Mitsubishi Corporation, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, MMSL, Nisshin Shipping, NS United, NYK, Saito

Shipping, Shoei Kisen, Sumisho Marine, Sumito Corporation, Suzuki Jitsugyo, Yaegawakaiun, and Yamamizu

To host the guests, Mr Harry Banga, the Chairman and CEO of the Caravel Group and Mr Kishore Rajvanshy,

Managing Director of Fleet Management Limited, along with other senior executives of FLEET and Caravel

Group were also in attendance.

Mr Harry Banga, the Chairman and CEO of the Caravel Group, said, “When Fleet Management began

operations, we had no balance sheet, no track record, and barely any staff. However, our esteemed clients

have trusted us with their assets, believed in us as a management team, and perhaps most importantly, shared

in the vision we had 25 years ago. Today, our collective vision represents over 500 vessels under

management, the careers and dreams of over 20,000 seafarers, and nearly 1,000 staff in our offices.”

Mr Kishore Rajvanshy, Managing Director, Fleet Management Limited, said, “We started our journey in Japan

in 1997. Since then, FLEET has grown steadily into becoming the largest professional manager of Japanese

Owned tonnage, managing more than 100 ships on behalf of around 30 distinguished Japanese Owners.

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary in Japan is our small way of saying thank you to our customers and patrons.

From 1 to 500+ ships across diverse ship types, our journey has been completely organic and driven by the

passion of hundreds of shore colleagues and thousands of seafarers. We have learnt from each other,

grabbed every opportunity we could, and molded our 25-year success story, step by step.”

FLEET’s final 25th-anniversary celebration is lined up in Hong Kong on 7 November 2019.

With a 25-year history, 500+ vessels, 20,000+ qualified seafarers and 800+ shore employees, Fleet Management Limited

is one of the world's largest independent third-party ship management companies. For the last 25 years, FLEET has

pioneered many of the crewing, safety, and technical standards, which have become benchmarks in the industry.

Today, FLEET is the second largest Bulk carrier and Tanker manager, and fifth largest container manager in the world. In

the last 12 months, FLEET has helped carry 80 million tons of Bulk cargo on vessels ranging from Handy size to VLOCs

and cargoes ranging from iron ore to grain to nickel ore to windmills, steel and other project cargoes.
