Swire Shipping strengthens commitment to Asia Pacific region with new-generation vessels

The China Navigation Company's first 2,400 TEU* newbuild vessel, MV Changsha, entered service in March. The vessel has been deployed on Swire Shipping's Southeast Asia to Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands service. Built by CSSC Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding, Changsha is part of a wider order book of eight large feeder container ships (four 2,400 TEU vessels and four 2,750 TEU vessels) scheduled for delivery in 2020, and marks the latest phase of a fleet renewal programme that began in 2015. These modern vessels are designed to offer maximum flexibility, including non-containerised and project cargo capability, with the needs of Swire Shipping's customers and markets in mind. Optimised hull forms provide enhanced fuel efficiency and head an extensive range of eco-design features that have significantly reduced the ships' environmental footprint.

(* TEU = Twenty-foot equivalent units, i.e. cargo capacity measured by volume of standard 20-foot shipping containers.)
