Binny Shipping Ltd and Binny Ship Management Ltd at Tortola (British Virgin
Islands) are two companies active – as the names state – in different sectors of
shipping both however being concerned with dry bulk. Website at
Management includes the few ships operated by the shipping division while in the past, important Indian companies such as Scindia were customer.
The shipping division, founded in 1988, currently has two vessels sailing under the Panamanian flag; further expansion is planned.
Report on the temporary seizure (luckily resolved) of Nirmal Bhushan in Iraq at <www.themarineworld.com>.
Shown as a drawing on the site, the house flag is dark blue having a rather small black disk in the centre, bearing a red initial B.

Binny Ship Management Pvt. Ltd. is shown by Lloyds as based
Mumbai, India and was started in 1988 by V.B. Verma as a ship
management company becoming a ship owner in 1995. I know the
website stresses the British Virgin Island connection but this
seems to be a case of subsidiaries being based in a more
favourable tax resort, with their ships being registered in
Panama. The flag home probably thus originates from India.

Hutchison Port Holdings is an international sea port operator incorporated in
the British Virgin Islands, headquartered in Hong Kong and listed in Singapore.
Its flag is based on its logo, but with the top and bottom 'cut' to reach the
proportions of 2:3 or 1:2, depending on the country of the individual port.
