From July 2018, Swire Shipping will upgrade its multipurpose liner services between North Asia and the Pacific.
Under this enhancement, Swire Shipping will be adding direct calls at the Chinese ports of Nansha and Ningbo and aligning its North Asia services to provide a 10-day service frequency between North Asia and Papua New Guinea (PNG). Other markets served by Swire Shipping’s North Asia services such as Townsville, Noumea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Zealand will also benefit from access to more ports in China.
Donald Fraser, Swire Shipping’s General Manager for Liner Trades said, “Swire Shipping is committed to developing and upgrading our services and are delighted to provide our customers with this latest set of improvements. In particular, there will be a sailing every 10 days from China to PNG, complementing our 10-day Southeast Asia-PNG and Australia PNG services. We’re very excited to be offering our customers this comprehensive import and export network coverage.”
Swire Shipping is the liner shipping division of The China Navigation Company (CNCo) and operates multiple liner trades in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, North America and the nations of the South Pacific, in addition to providing services to India, the MiddleEast and Europe. Swire Shipping’s network of services operates a versatile fleet of multipurpose ships capable of carrying a wide range of cargoes including containerized, refrigerated, project, breakbulk and heavylift cargoes.
