Swire Shipping Boosts Tasmania Calls

Singapore-based Swire Shipping will be expanding its multipurpose liner service coverage in Tasmania with an additional port call to Tasmania’s capital city of Hobart, starting from November 2015. 

With a nine-day service frequency, this enhanced network will connect Melbourne to Hobart with a transit time of one day, and link Hobart to Sydney and Brisbane with transit times of two and five days, respectively.

In addition to improving Tasmania’s connection to mainland Australia, Swire Shipping’s network will connect Hobart to global destinations such as Asia, Europe, the Pacific Islands and the United States through transshipment services.

Brodie Stevens, Country Manager for Swire Shipping in Australia, said: ”Swire Shipping is committed to providing direct international shipping services to Tasmania. We have been working closely with our partners to develop this service and are confident that the Tasmanian industry will benefit from the shipping options for international and domestic cargo.”

Swire Shipping has a long term commitment to providing shipping services to Tasmania and for the last three years, has served Bell Bay through its Australia Pacific Asia service.
