About Seatrek

"Do what you do well"

Asifur R. Chowdhury
Founder & Managing Director
Seatrek Trans Pte Ltd. is a leading dry bulk carrier specializing in Handy to Panamax sizes. We offer shipping and logistical solutions through all trade routes, east to west, north to south, serving more than 100 destinations. Our key business focus is creating customized solutions for our clients’ shipping and logistical needs through reliable and flexible services at competitive freight rates. This is made possible through our international offices in Singapore (Headquarters), China, Seoul, Bangkok and our two offices in Dhaka and Chittagong, Bangladesh.

To increase diversification in the marine sector, Seatrek penetrated the tanker market at the end of 2018. We are now operating three newly built 39k DWT tankers and are expanding our shipping services — offering transport of all wet cargoes, including both dirty and clean products.

The international element of the shipping business is further reflected in the team at Seatrek. Comprised of people from many countries, this organizational diversity lends vibrancy to the company. Each team member brings in a different perspective, yet is unified in their dedication to the client. As a tribute to the people who have made Seatrek what it is today, our most recently acquired ships have been named MV Essence of Seatrek and MV Spirit of Seatrek. Internationalism is the very essence of who we are, reflected by the industry we serve.

Chartered Luxury Yachts

Started in 2010, Oceanscape (Seatrek’s associate company) provides chartered luxury yachts in Singapore and Thailand. Galene and Adamo are the first of their kind to sail the waters of the Asia-Pacific. Whether it is a sunset wedding, an indulgent cruise, or just a fun day out at sea, Oceanscape provides its clients memorable moments to cherish.


Through his frequent business trips to Madrid, Asifur developed a love of Spanish food and culture. This interest led to the establishment of an elegant restaurant, Binomio, which is listed among the best Spanish fine dining restaurants in Singapore

“Binomio" is Spanish for "pair" or "duo" and is reflective of the combination of a tapas bar and fine dining that the restaurant offers.

Chef Jose Alonso, who has worked with celebrity chefs Sergi Arola, Francis Paniego and Spain’s most celebrated chef, Santi Santamaria, helms the restaurant and ensures the authenticity of the service.
