Carpenters Shipping service changes: South East Asia Service (SEA) to Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Solomon Islands (SB)

On 14th May, 2020, MBf Carpenters Shipping Limited announced service change to their current schedule as below:

//start//

Ho Chi Minh and Sri Racha call will be removed from the service.

All cargoes will be feedered to Singapore and/or Port Klang for transhipment. This will provide a significant increase in frequency for customers exporting out from Vietnam and Thailand.

Due to changing trends, Jurong port call will be discontinued on SEA service. All breakbulk cargoes will be redirected to our NSS service (for PNG) or to be loaded out from Port Klang (for SB).

The service will call Port Klang prior to Singapore before heading to Lae and Honiara. Madang will now be serviced on our NSS service. This is to ensure a better service and schedule integrity on both SEA and NSS service.

These changes will be reflected in our next schedule to be release later this week.

//end//
