Swire Shipping to start weekly services to Micronesia

29 August 2017 | Micronesia


Swire Shipping will upgrade its multipurpose liner service and introduce a fixed-day, weekly de-livery schedule into Guam and Saipan to better serve customers in the Micronesian region.

After four years of continuous service in Guam, Swire Shipping introduced its first call to Saipan late last year and has been calling both markets on a fortnightly basis.

“Swire Shipping has been a leading provider of sustainable shipping solutions to the Pacific Islands for about 80 years. To-day, while we operate a global network, this region remains as one of our key markets. We have a long-term commitment to our customers and the communities in the Pacific Islands and will always find ways to serve them better and to connect them to the rest of the world, said Jeremy Sutton, General Manager, Swire Shipping. ”

Swire Shipping will cooperate with APL and gain access to their regular service operating between South Korea, Japan, Guam and Saipan.

This service upgrade will enable Swire Shipping’s customers to improve their supply chain efficiency and inventory management, and in, turn, the communities in Guam and Saipan will receive their goods such as food and groceries supplies on a regular weekly basis, said a release.

Eric Mensing, Senior Vice-President of the Guam Trade, APL, said, “We’re excited that our Guam Saipan Express service is being counted on for service excellence and hope that this leads to other areas of cooperation with Swire Shipping. Swire has a similar long and proud history of pro-viding a high degree of service to their customers just like we do, so the fit is good. APL is committed to Guam and Saipan and we will be here for a long time.”
