who we are

Lila Shipping is an integrated vessel owner and operator that maintains tonnage in the dry, wet and container spaces. The group’s origins date back to 1992 when the company’s principals first began to trade older tonnage. In 2007 the principals acquired their first assets for commercial trading and chartering and have since then owned and operated a diverse fleet of over 40 ships. Our experienced commercial and management team serves our clients out of strategically placed offices in nine countries throughout the world and routinely operate upto Capesize dry bulk vessels, VLCCs and Post-Panamax containers.

Vision, Mission, Values

Lila Shipping currently has a fleet of 41 vessels and is poised to grow into a fleet of 50 vessels within the next four years. Our mission is to conservatively grow the fleet while continuing to maintain our focus on upholding the highest possible industry standards and to guarantee a high level of performance to our cargo partners and charterers.

For over 25 years our principals have thrived on our three foundational values of professionalism, integrity and performance. It is these three pillars of our identity that define our core commitment to customer satisfaction.
