Ocean Bulk Shipping was established in Dubai by the founder Mr O.V.Babu with ship operation and ship broking as company's main activities.

Freight forwarding division was established with a network of forwarding agents spread out in the Arabian Gulf region. Steamer agency division started out with the capacity to operate out of all the 7 ports in the UAE and with special arrangements at nine other ports within the middle east region.

Bought two ships MV OBS Swathy and MV OBS Anita. Both ships were technically managed by OBS and‏ operated continuously for about four years in the Arabian Gulf - Indian subcontinent region‏.

Due to worldwide economic downturn and contraction of the shipping industry, company decided to refocus only on its core activities of ship operation & freight forwarding activities.
