Bali Hai service – Honiara call omission

Dear Valued Customers,

Bali Hai trade management has been monitoring the current situation in Solomon Islands very closely, regrettably the ongoing port congestion and decreasing productivity at Honiara port continues to impact schedule integrity and the overall service provision to our customers.

Therefore, after careful consideration and in order to continue to provide a robust schedule between North Asia and the South Pacific the decision has been taken to omit Honiara from the service with effect from Kiribati Chief voyage 1602.

Bali Hai will continue to provide customers with an extensive number of competitive transshipment options using the Swire Shipping network between Honiara and all regional and global destinations.  Dates for these new service options will be included in the schedule from next week.

Management will continue to monitor the situation in the Solomon Islands and regularly review the potential to re-instate the Honiara call should the situation improve.

Bali Hai is always committed to provide reliable shipping solutions, and becoming our customers’ partner of choice. The enhanced Bali Hai service will allow us to provide a more regular and reliable liner service to our customers.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support, and we look forward to being of continued service to you. Should you have questions regarding the alternative arrangement for your cargo requirement, please do not hesitate to contact your Swire Shipping representative.
