Suva developing into regional shipping hub with new Asia service

Suva is developing into a shipping hub for the South Pacific reports the Fiji Sun.

Fiji Ports Corporation Limited (FPCL) chief executive officer Vajira Piyasena says Suva is to become an offloading port for containers not just for Fiji but also as a transit point for other destinations.

Piyasena expects growth in container transshipment numbers due to re-routing and re-positioning of vessels with larger capacities and the introduction of new services like CMA CGM’s new direct service from Asian ports to Suva .

He says while there is still congestion at the wharf because of limited storage areas, the current infrastructure is adequate, and management systems just need improvement.
