2014 South East Asia to Port Moresby Calls

Dear Valued Customers,

In accordance with the announced vessel sharing agreement between Carpenters Shipping and Swire Shipping between South East Asia and PNG, there will be improvements to Swire Shipping’s Port Moresby direct service. There will be two direct Port Moresby calls per month from South East Asia, served by the Ninghai and the Hansa Nordberg.

Combined with monthly APA services, Swire Shipping will now offer a market leading product of 28 voyages per annum directly from Asia to Port Moresby. This will also provide increased frequency from South East Asia to Port Moresby with a greater range of direct load ports.

The first vessel to call Port Moresby and other PNG ports Southbound under the new structure will be the Hansa Nordberg V1401 (previously advertised as the Highland Chief V1401). The second vessel to call Port Moresby and other PNG ports Southbound will be the Ninghai V1402 (previously advertised as the Papuan Chief V1402).

Further to this, the previously advertised Port Moresby direct call on Ngankin V1401 will be transferred to the Hansa Nordberg V1401. There will be minimal impact to scheduled ETAs. All Port Moresby bookings on the Ngankin V1401 will be transferred automatically to the Hansa Nordberg V1401.

Swire Shipping appreciates your continued support. Please contact your local Swire Shipping representative for further information if required.

Yours sincerely,

Swire Shipping Trade Management
