Swire Shipping Doubles Service Frequency and Direct Coverage

North Asia to Port Moresby



Swire Shipping is delighted to announce the commencement of direct calls on our North Asia Express (NAX) service to Port Moresby.  This new service will extend the comprehensive coverage that Swire Shipping already offers with direct sailings from South East Asia, Australia, Fiji and New Zealand.


The NAX service will provide direct calls from Shanghai, Ningbo and Shekou, providing market leading frequency from Asia into Port Moresby with 3 sailings per month.


Key transit times as follows;

  • Shanghai               18 days                      (direct call)
  • Ningbo                   16 days                      (direct call)
  • Shekou                  12 days                      (direct call)


The first sailing will be Papuan Chief v1613s arriving into Port Moresby mid August.

This enhancement will complement Swire Shipping’s existing services into our key market of Papua New Guinea where customers already enjoy the market leading service frequency, transit times and coverage:

  • 6 Sailings a month into Lae from Asia
  • 8 Day frequency from Australia into Port Moresby and Lae
  • Only direct carrier from Fiji to PNG
