Capt. Venkat Padmanabhan is a Master Mariner who has spent close to 40 years in the maritime industry. As a youngster, the call of the sea beckoned to him and in 1978, he prepared for a maritime career by joining T.S. Rajendra. He worked hard to move up the ranks and took his first command as Master in 1988. He stepped ashore by 1990 and began working as a Pilot with the Chennai Port Trust. Subsequently, he gained experience in various shipping and trading companies in India and Singapore.
With his vast experience in the maritime sector of India and Singapore, Venkat established VASI Shipping in January 2012 with the vision, “To provide a world class integrated ocean logistics service for today’s global business.” Today, VASI Shipping has two verticals – Bulk and Container, which give it the resilience to ride the waves of the shipping industry.
