Container shipping line ANL has announced a regular direct connection between Singapore and Port Hedland for break-bulk, containerised and out-of-gauge cargo.
Sailing from Singapore as of 30 October, the ANL service, which is called “The Pilbara Connection”, will help reduce the length of the WA supply chain, reduce road haulage and help shippers and consignees to import and export more easily from remote north west Australia.
The service will sail from Singapore ever 20 days and offers an eight day transit to Port Hedland along with landside delivery options including, but not limited to, Dampier and Karratha.
ANL’s General Manager, Intra-Oceania, Chris Peck commented, “connecting the world to the Pilbara Region direct from Singapore is a game changer for the zone. Shorter supply chains, less trucks on the road, wider sourcing options, export cargo opportunities: it just makes sense!”
ANL is a subsidiary of CMA CGM, a member of Shipping Australia.
