Our History

About Us

150+ years in shipping

 

Eurochart S.A. is located in Athens, Greece. and was founded in 1997 by Mr. Aristides J. Pittas and his family, with the purpose of offering chartering services in the dry cargo Handy and Panamax sectors, for selected clientele both as commercial managers and chartering brokers.

 

Eurochart S.A. is a member of an international group with more than 150 years presence in shipping (Eurobulk, EuroSeas & Eurotrade).

 

The company's heritage derives from the continuation of the presence in shipping of the Pittas family, which started in the 1870's, and survived two world wars before being expressed in partnerships with the Karoussis family in CHIOS NAVIGATION of London between 1960 - 1990, and with Petros Pappas in OCEANBULK MARITIME S.A. between 1991 - 1994.

Eurochart S.A. currently offers services in dry chartering and S&P sectors. We strive to provide our customers with safe, reliable and punctual services at competitive prices, using time-chartered as well as owned tonnage. Today our company handles a large number of exclusive ships & cargoes which are handled from our offices in Athens.

 

With the incorporation of the Sale & Purchase department, which has recently expanded with the presence of a Far East office in Shanghai, the company expanded its activities in a developing market with a view of providing a more complete service to its customers.

 

In this respect Eurochart’s knowledge and experience of the major shipping market gives us access to major international sources for our individual internal and external high demanding clients.

 

The company has managed to conclude business for its principals, both as Owners and Charterers/Traders, on long term charters, C.O.A.’s as well as spot /tramp chartering and S&P activities.
