About Us


Econship is a dream to ‘excellence’ by the founders. The founders are separated by national boundaries and joined by this compelling dream. Capt Rath, with three decades of experience in the shipping industry, leading an equally committed and energetic team of individuals laid the foundation of Econship on 3rd October 2009. There has been no looking back, since then. We have stood by our values of uncompromising integrity, humility, honesty, respect, and helpfulness. Training, coaching, mentoring, taking risks, giving no excuses, telling the truth, and perseverance are our unwavering values. Starting with a few containers in our fleet in 2009, we have managed to grow rapidly to a large fleet, growing steadily at a rate of 150% per annum. And we managed this growth during the lean periods of container shipping, following the global financial crash of 2008.

We are people focused. We comprise of A+ guys. While we groom people to A+ levels, we work hard to make them tick as a single Team. Setting aside differences in experience, age, and nationalities we work as a single team with a single dream, the dream to ‘Excellence’. We understand that use of technology is very essential. Therefore, we have a team constantly working on our home grown software to make things easier and simpler for our customers as well as ourselves.

We are the first in the industry in many processes. We allow the shipper to see his Invoice on line, pay on line, make his SI, and print his OBLs on our system. All these functions are integrated into a very user-friendly and simple web interface. All these functions can be done with a few clicks. Similarly, we have a simple system for importers who can see their bills and even pay when they choose to. And we have developed the capability of paperless deliveries to the importers. No more long queues and hours of waiting at counters to collect BLs or Delivery Orders. All this is done on a secure and robust web platform.

OOG Or ODC(Over Dimensional Cargo)

Econship specializes in the carriage of over-sized or odd-sized cargo in containerized mode. The equipments used for this type of cargo are: Open-Tops, Flat-Racks, & Flat-Beds of 20’ & 40’ lengths.

Examples of this cargo : Industrial Boilers, turbines, big pipes, generators, earth-moves, cranes, plant machineries, big boats, yachts, fire-engines, wheels, and various types of machine parts for erection of factories and power plants etc.

Econship's Tips for Shippers:

The proper stowage, securing and handling of out of gauge (OOG) cargoes can present many challenges and issues. Econship has a wealth of experience in the carriage of such cargo and offers the following guidelines to its customers:

Flat Racks:

Upon receipt, you should check the condition of the flat rack and ensure that that it is fit for your requirements. If the container is damaged do not attempt to repair and request to have it replaced with a sound container. It is important to note that the height of the end walls differs between a 40 ft. flat rack (1.943 meters/76.1”) and a 20 ft. flat rack (2.231 meters / 91.4”). So cargo that may not be over height for a 20 ft. flat rack may well be over height for a 40 ft. flat rack.

Centre of Gravity:

Proper determination and identification of the centre of gravity for the cargo is of great importance. If the centre of gravity of the cargo is not determined and taken into consideration before stuffing, the cargo may well be susceptible to shifting off the flat rack during transit resulting in cargo damage and possible personal injuries. The weight of the cargo should be cantered on the flat rack. When shipping wooden crates, it is always preferable to mark the centre of gravity on the exterior of the crate for handling and securing reference purposes.


The weight of the cargo must be properly distributed over the length of the flat rack. It is preferable that the weight be spread in such a manner that the load does not exceed 2,500 pounds per liner foot (inside dimensions) of the flat rack. Dunnage and wooden blocks must be made of hardwood and free of defects and insects. Short pieces of wood and wooden pallets should not be utilized as dunnage.


Lashing of the cargo must be carried out in accordance with “IMO MSC/CIRC 745 GUIDLINES FOR CARGO SECURING MANUAL AND GOOD SEAMANSHIP PRACTICE”. Lashing materials (wires, chains, rods, tensioners, turnbuckles, etc.) must be of an approved time and of suitable size and capacity taking into consideration the weight of cargo to be secured. As a general rule of thumb, the combined breaking strength of the lashings to be used must be at least 1.8 times the weight of cargo to be secured.

Suitable “chafing gear” and/or “softeners” is to be fitted on the lashings in way of any areas in which the lashings make contact with the cargo, other lashings or the structure of the flat rack itself in order to prevent excessive wear and subsequent failure of the lashings. All ECONSHIP flat racks are fitted with specially designed lashing points and “eye rings”. Lashings are not to be secured to any other point on the flat rack other than those points designated for this purpose.

Wheeled Cargo:

When preparing the stowage and securing plan for wheeled cargo, the wheelbase dimensions of the cargo must be considered in order to determine whether or not the cargo will be out of gauge. Wheeled cargo must be secured with proper lashings, however, the wheels are to be further provided with wooden blocks. The wooden blocks used for this purpose must be as wide as they are high.

Lashing Certificate:

The stowage and securing of the cargo on a flat rack should be supervised by a competent cargo surveyor. ECONSHIP will require that all Shippers of flat rack provide a lashing certificate issued by a competent cargo surveyor prior to acceptance and loading of the cargo. If the Shipper does not provide the lashing certificate, ECONSHIP will nominate an independent surveyor to confirm safe loading, lashing and protection of the cargo against the normal risks of ocean transportation. The costs for such surveyor attendance are for the account of the Merchant. Marking – If the cargo is over height, over length and/or over width, the protruding dimensions should marked in red or yellow paint in order to clearly identify these areas and serve to prevent possible handling damage.


Depending upon the type, size and nature of the cargo, ECONSHIP may require loading and discharging of the flat rack to take place under the supervision of a competent cargo surveyor. The cost of which is to be for the account of the Merchant. Stowage – Due to the size of the cargo, certain shipments may require “on deck” stowage. In such cases, an “on deck” stowage remark must be endorsed on the Bill of Lading.
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding proposed shipments of Out of Gauge (OOG) cargo, please contact your local ECONSHIP representative.
