Darabshaw B. Dubash founded a partnership firm in the year 1929 for operations as Stevedores, Ship agents, Ship Chandlers and Landing & Shipping Contractors.
With immediate effect, in the year 1929 the ruler of the State of Bhavnagar, Prabhashankar Patni; invited us to manage the Bhavnagar Port as Landing and Shipping Contractors. Impressed by DBC’s performance and the proficient functioning of the Bhavnagar port, the Jamsaheb of Jamnagar invited us to run their port as well in 1948. Soon DBC Gujarat initiated a series of pioneering projects along the entire coast of Gujarat, making us a name to reckon with in Shipping.
In the early 1930’s we started our association with NYK Line (Japan) when we handled their salt, cotton and small machinery vessels. This association has endured and grown over 3 generations. Today we are proud of this over 80 year relationship and are handling bulk, break bulk, project, container and car carrier vessels.
Along the way we have received innumerable awards, certifications and most importantly the testimonials and goodwill of our several clients.
