Blue Water announces New North Asia-PNG liner service

By: PNG Business News October 28, 2022


Blue Water Shipping is proud to announce the Kumul Service - a new regular liner service between North Asia and Papua New Guinea (PNG). The service will be an extension to the current Blue Water Shipping liner service through to Lihir, PNG, and will now offer customers a further solution into Lae.

Steven Lofaro, Regional Director, Energy, Ports and Projects Oceania, sees a growing demand for cargo capacity, particularly for Breakbulk cargoes, in and out of Papua New Guinea. The Kumul service, operating with the MV Gala - a multipurpose vessel with a single lift capacity of 150 mt . enables Blue Water Shipping to provide a regular and efficient solution that can benefit a wide range of industries due to the ability to receive containerised, break-bulk, project and out-of-gauge cargo.

“It is exciting to offer our industry a regular and reliable service. The solution will help strengthen the supply chain for organisations based in PNG, focusing on optimisation through both the importing and exporting of equipment in and out of PNG”.

The maiden voyage will depart from Asia early-December. Moving forward, the service will offer regular sailings from China, Korea, and Japan into PNG every 30 days.

For Steven Lofaro, the service complements the Blue Water Shipping capabilities within Projects Logistics to ensure efficient cargo flows for our customers.

As a full end-to-end provider, we offer additional services, including landside freight, consolidation, piece checking, warehousing, cargo handling, and customs clearance. Globally, Blue Water has more than 70 offices worldwide, and the company provides all logistics services in modern supply chain management.
