Swire Shipping upgraded its multipurpose liner service to the Micronesia region in September last year by introducing a fixed-day weekly delivery schedule into Guam and Saipan, both doubling from the previous fortnightly service. The upgrade enables customers in both markets to enjoy improved supply chain efficiency and inventory management. In the same month, greater connectivity was introduced between Townsville in Queensland and Asian ports through an upgrade of the company's North Asia Express ("NAX") service. The 20-day frequency service offers market-leading transit times to and from major Asian and Southeast Asian ports, including an eight-day transit to Singapore, as well as a 17- and 15-day transit from Shanghai and Ningbo respectively.

The NAX service was further enhanced in November with the introduction of a new call at Rabaul in Papua New Guinea. The 20-day frequency call at Rabaul offers transit times of 11, 17, 21 and 24 days respectively from South Korea, Japan, Mainland China and Taiwan. These services are supported through the deployment of modern, eco-friendly vessels as part of the company's long-term commitment to deliver sustainable shipping solutions to its customers.
