Madang Direct Calls

20th November 2013



Swire Shipping is pleased to announce that the direct Madang calls on the Australia – PNG service have been cemented in the service profile on this routing and will remain a staple on the service in 2014.

Swire Shipping will continue to work closely with the Madang business community to ensure we are your shipping partner of choice. Specifically, by providing viable shipping solutions that assist you in improving efficiency along with Swire Shipping’s well known service.

While initial support has been slow, Swire Shipping is determined to continue building sustainable volumes for the direct service. Requests from local businesses as well as the Madang Chamber of Commerce have been voiced to Swire Shipping and we are delighted to respond with a committed, long term shipping solution. In addition to further strengthening our network, we believe the direct call service will and allow you to drive efficiency by directly connecting your business with suppliers across the globe.

The Kokopo Chief will continue to call Madang direct on a monthly basis. This is an exciting opportunity for importers and exporters alike and will provide direct monthly links to key ports in Australia. The greater Pacific and USA can also be serviced via transshipment.

The service will improve existing delays resulting from transshipment, requiring clearing customs in Lae and Port Moresby and the impact that cargo delays have on sales, inventory and cash flow.

All Madang cargo will have guaranteed space.

For further information please do not hesitate to contact your local Swire Shipping representative or our Customer Service Department in Australia on 1300 550 505.

Kind regards,
Swire Shipping
