Swire Shipping has opened an office in Lae port, Papua New Guinea.

Alistair Skingley, country manager for Swire Shipping in the country, said: “The Lae port is Papua New Guinea’s busiest port and our vessels make regular port calls there. We wanted to be situated nearby so that we can be closer to our partners and better serve our customers and the community.”

In 2020, Swire Shipping upgraded its North Asia Express (NAX) and Southeast Asia (SEA) services to boost connectivity to Papua New Guinea.
