Pakistan Steam Navigation Company Limited was established in
Chittagong, East Pakistan. This company was owned by Mr. Abdul Qasim
Khan a renowned personality and a big industrialist. He also owned Jute Mills,
Leather Factory, Match Factory, Insurance Company and Board Building
Industry in Chittagong.
Two old ships of British India Steamship (BI) were purchased by Pakistan Steam Navigation Company Ltd for plying between
Chittagong – Karachi.
This company progressed very well, but, unfortunately ill health of Mr. Abdul Qasim Khan did not allow him to run the affairs of company effectively. Other family members did not pay full attention in the affairs of company which led closure of company in late 60’s of last century.
