SEA Swift Pty Ltd has appointed Gulf Agency Company (GAC) as the principal carrier agent for its newly-launched Dampier-Singapore liner shipping service, reports Hellenic Shipping News.
With the agreement, GAC will complete liner agency services to Sea Swift vessels carrying containerised and breakbulk cargo between the ports of Singapore and Dampier.
Other details in the agreement include services such as container sourcing, management and control, documentation, port operations, customer care, financial governance, and customer care.
The 383-TEU Karratha Bay will ply the Sea Swift's new route by making an average of two sailings per month between Singapore and Dampier.
'Western Australia is home to major resources and petroleum projects, so we anticipate that demand for this direct link between two key cities will rise steadily to facilitate the transfer of general and breakbulk cargo,' said GAC Singapore managing director Henrik Althen.
'It is likely to be further bolstered by the growing imports and exports generated by developing economies in Asia, post-Covid-19, with Singapore acting as a transshipment port,' said Mr Althen.
Meanwhile, Sea Swift acting CEO Lino Bruno said the company's new international service will be a lasting installation in its Northern Australia shipping network.
