Singapore-based Swire Bulk opens a new line connecting Europe and SE Asia
Swire Bulk, the Singapore-based dry bulk trading division of the multinational Swire Group, operates a modern fuel-efficient fleet of owned, long term, and short term-chartered tonnage, amounting to over 150 vessels from Handysize to Panamax sizes. During the period started Jan and ended Dec 2021, the company carried a total of 28 million tonnes of cargoes, providing more than 460 unique port calls.
In June 2022, Swire Bulk launched a new liner service, connecting Europe and Southeast Asia. One or two vessels will be deployed on a monthly rotation. The list of major cargoes to be served by the new line includes project cargo and renewables, in addition to steels, wood, timber and other forestry products, construction materials, grain and other dry bulk cargoes, as well as bagged and industrial commodities.
The Asian ports on this new line, which are also the loading ports, are the Indonesian port of Amamapare, the city-state of Singapore, and Indian port of Dahej.
The European ports, which are also the discharge ports, are Spanish port of Huelva, the Belgian port of Antwerp, and the German port of Brunsbuttel. Besides the fixed route mentioned above, clients have the option of requesting an additional port of call.
