Daniel Chopra, after 14 years at sea, and a distinguished shipping career which saw him become the youngest Master Mariner with Peter Doehle, decided to start afresh with his own venture. With degrees in Maritime Law and Business Administration, he started Doehle Danautic in 2001 as Danautic Ship Management to offer Crew Management, Technical Management, Chartering and Ship Broking to third-party clients worldwide.
Today, the Company caters to a wide spectrum of services to 26+ principals worldwide. The services include Crew Management, Technical Management, Commercial Management, Chartering, Training & Development, NVOCC and Freight Forwarding. DDI arguably can be termed as the unsurpassed source of Crew Management and Technical Management services for Indian Flag vessels.
The dream of a young master mariner has led into an organization that has blossomed into one of the leading providers of shipping services around the world. In 2006, Danautic Ship Management merged with the Peter Doehle group and the company name changed to Doehle Danautic India Pvt. Ltd. Peter Doehle Group is one of the leading providers of shipping services around the world. The company has an existing global network of operations with offices in Isle of Man, U.K., Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Russia, Philippines (Manila) and India (Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata,Chennai, Chandigarh, Gurgaon, Goa, Kolhapur, Bhavnagar and Mundra).
In keeping with Daniel’s vision, the Company never stops dreaming, touching upon excellence in spheres beyond shipping. Today, the Company doesn’t set any limits because it believes that with change as the motivating factor, no limit is impossible, no dream is unattainable. Change is the supreme quotient that drives Doehle Danautic to look at possibilities, where very few dare to.
To transform these dreams into concrete reality needs perseverance and patience. At Doehle Danautic, we are not resting on our successes. We are expanding our present operations, both nationally and globally. Our aim is to grow into a diversified group that creates businesses for the future. Our focus is to going to be on building and establishing the Doehle Danautic brand as one that keeps transforming and invigorating itself in new directions.
Doehle Danautic operates in accordance with International Safety Management (ISM) Code and the International Quality Standards ISO 9001:2008.
