The Arya family has had a long history of being actively involved in the transport industry in India. Our first venture was 'Air Carrying Corporation' which was the country's first private airline in post independence India moving progessively from cargo to passenger transportation from 1948 upto 1969 when the company was nationalized with the advent of the government owned 'Indian Airlines Corp.' Therefater the family moved into inland waterways and road transport and till date operates one of the largest domestic trucking companies in India.
The second generation of the family ventured into shipping in 1978 and Aryacorp was born as a proprietorship firm and converted into a limited company in 1981. The brainchild of Mr. Prithviraj Arya, the company has grown over the last 3 decades to emerge as one of India's foremost and most respected dry cargo shipbroking, maritime advisory and agency companies.
We serve the international shipping community as specialist dry bulk shipbrokers and agents, cultivating mutually beneficial relationships between shipowners and charterers. The hallmark of our success has been our passion for the business, our technical prowess, the ability to provide unbiased advice and the determination to remain professional in our endeavours. Each member of our team goes through rigorous training to ensure that they are well equipped to offer end-to-end chartering solutions and overcome any hurdles they encounter in the rapidly evolving dry bulk marketplace. A clear testament to our success has been the trust that our principals maintain in our broking faculty and our reputation as one of India's most respected shipbrokers.
We are on the approved panel of shipbrokers for the Government of India (Transchart) as well as the Shipping Corporation of India Limited in Mumbai. We also work with most of the established Indian owners and charterers along with a host of well known shipowners, operators and charterers worldwide covering business across the handysize, handymax, panamax and capesize segments.
