Swire Shipping adds service

May 6 - Swire Shipping will launch a new express service between North Asia, Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Australia in July 2015, employing two modern, highly fuel-efficient multipurpose Chief class vessels.

The North Asia Express (NAX) service will provide a direct link between North Asia, Townsville in Australia and Lae in PNG offering a 16-day transit between Shanghai and Lae, and a 10-day transit between Townsville and Shanghai. NAX will complement Swire Shipping's existing North Asia Trade, providing a 10-day frequency from North Asia to Lae.

Jeremy Sutton, general manager, Asia trades said: "The North Asia Express service will expand Swire Shipping's network coverage across the region. This new route enhances our network of multipurpose liner services and allows us to improve our service to our customers."

Swire Shipping, which will be taking delivery of four new Chief class vessels from Ouhua Shipyard over the next two months, is the liner shipping division of CNCo and operates multiple liner trades.

It operates a versatile fleet of multipurpose ships capable of carrying a wide range of cargoes including containerised, refrigerated, project, breakbulk and heavy lift cargoes.
