Swire partners with Rickmers in India, Middle East

The new strategic partnership between Swire Shipping and Rickmers-Linie will connect more than 12 ports in the region, according to a joint statement from the companies.

   Swire Shipping and Rickmers-Linie have begun what the two companies are calling a “connecting carrier partnership” in India and the Middle East, according to a joint statement.
   Under the new strategic partnership, Swire Shipping will be able to transport breakbulk and project cargoes from India and the Middle East to its network in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific through Rickmers-Linie’s Middle East and India Service via Singapore.
   The first joint shipment will commence from Mumbai June 9 and the first full voyage, beginning in Jebel Ali, will depart June 28. Cargo will be loaded in Jebel Ali, Mumbai, Chennai, Dammam, Kolkata, and others on inducement, transferred in Singapore, and discharged in Papua New Guinea, Solomons, New Caledonia, Fiji, Darwin, East Timor and New Zealand.
   The monthly multipurpose service will have a lifting capacity of up to 120 metric tons, the carriers said.
   “This collaboration with Rickmers-Linie allows Swire Shipping to provide its customers with another shipping solution for their multipurpose cargo needs. It enhances our network coverage by providing a regular breakbulk service out of India and the Middle East into the South Pacific region,” said William Arblaster, commercial manager of Swire Shipping.
   “Since our vessels from Europe to the Middle East and India continue to Singapore, this cooperation offers an increased range of destinations and loading ports on offer for customers of both Swire Shipping and Rickmers-Linie,” added Gerhard Janssen, director of Global Sales and Marketing at Rickmers-Linie.
