New Pacific Shipping

New Pacific Line


The company

New Pacific Line (Newpac) was incorporated in 2002 as a dedicated liner service between Asia and the Pacific Islands, and was acquired by Schoeller Holdings in 2006. Recognizing the attraction and value Singapore can offer as an international maritime center and major hub, in September 2009, New Pacific Line Pte Ltd was incorporated as a wholly owned subsidiary company in Singapore, taking over the Regional Head Office responsibilites from Auckland.




Niche market player

Newpac operates a fleet of modern container vessels of 1,700 teu capacity with breakbulk capabilies in the niche markets between North and SE Asia, to/from Papua New Guinea (PNG) and the Solomon Islands. The service includes a direct port coverage in North Asia calling South Korea (Pusan), the People's Republic of China (Qingdao, Shanghai and Ningbo), and Hong Kong, linking with the main ports of Papua New Guinea (Lae, Rabaul and Port Moresby) and Solomon Islands (Honiara), on a regular, reliable 21 day frequency.  In addition, Newpac offers a service between South Eas Asia (Singapore, Port Kelang and Jakarta) and Papua New Guinea (Port Moresby and Lae) on a monthly frequency.

Partnership with feeders

Through partnerships with several reliable feeder operators, Newpac is able to accept cargo to/from ports which are not direct main port calls. Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai serve as main hubs for Asia, Europe and USA while Lae is the transshipment port for the outer Pacific Islands. Within the scheduled main port calls, Newpac is always able to consider adhoc direct calls for project cargo or on inducement basis.

Acceptance of Breakbulk, COC and SOC

Newpac operates a fleet of leased General Purpose standard and open-top containers in addition to its own flat-racks to cater for general, out of gauge and most classes of IMDG cargo. The Line also welcomes Shipper's Own Containers (SOCs) from Main Line Operators, Nvoccs and other Container Owners.

The crane capacity of Newpac's fleet ensures the acceptance of breakbulk project and general cargo with unit weight up to 58 tons.
