New liner service from Singapore
Australia's major privately owned shipping company, Sea Swift, has launched its new Dampier-Singapore liner shipping service, due to start in December 2020. The shipping company appointed the Gulf Agency Company (GAC) as carrier agent.
A dedicated 99 m vessel – the “Karratha Bay” – will ply Sea Swift’s new route, making an average of two sailings per month between Singapore and Dampier. Shipment times are expected to be up to two days shorter than the Fremantle-Singapore route.
GAC's liner agency services to Sea Swift RoRo vessels carrying containerised and breakbulk cargoes between the ports of Singapore and Dampier include ship agency, husbandry and cargo services, with GAC as the main contact point for customers in Singapore, Dampier/Karratha, and Fremantle.
Other services included are container sourcing, management and control, port operations, documentation, financial governance, customer care as well as equipment handling. (cd)
