Australia to PNG - Schedule changes

AUSTRALIA TO PNG / SOLOMON ISLANDS

SCHEDULE CHANGES - DECEMBER VESSELS

Further to our advice of last week, the Swire Shipping Australia - PNG and Solomon Islands service has experienced significant delays over recent weeks which have resulted in major disruptions to our schedule.While our schedule offering is struggling to conform to the advertised 7 day frequency (14 days to Solomon Islands), our commitment to delivering your cargo efficiently and promptly remains paramount.We have undertaken a review of vessels over the coming weeks and made some changes which we anticipate will result in delivering cargo as promised while assisting to mitigate further opportunities for schedule disruptions.We have sped up the vessels to clear the back log of cargo in Australia and at the same time met the port coverage for cargo in PNG.

Revised rotations as per attached.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience these changes may cause.Please also accept our assurances that we are doing everything we can to manage such disruptions to our schedule and we expect many more challenges ahead.

Our customer service team will be in touch to discuss how these changes will impact your cargo.For further information please do not hesitate to contact your local Sales representative or the Customer Service team on 1300 550 505 or customerservice@swireshipping.com
