Blue Water Expands Asia-Pacific Footprint

Project Logistics Provider Opens New Offices in China, Papua New Guinea

Blue Water Shipping has strengthened its Asia-Pacific presence after launching offices and warehouse space in Papua New Guinea and China.

The project logistics provider’s new office and fully operational warehouse in Papua New Guinea is located at the Lae Tidal Basin close to the industrial city of Lae on the island’s east coast. The site offers easy access to major transport routes and logistic hubs, Blue Water said.

The company, which sees growing demand for breakbulk cargo in and out of Papua New Guinea, is also planning to set up a base in Port Moresby in the south of the country, it added.

“With expertise in capital-intensive industries such as mining, infrastructure, wind, solar and oil and gas, Blue Water is well-placed to provide PNG with opportunities that can build on those in Australia, where Blue Water launched its project division in 2021,” the company said.

China Calling

Blue Water’s new base in Beijing, meanwhile, will help strengthen its market position and support further growth in the Asia region, where it has been active for more than 25 years, it said. The office will focus on project transport for the energy sectors.

“With the opening of our Beijing office, we are strengthening our service, especially towards the oil, gas and wind sectors. At the same time, we continue to focus on new opportunities within solar, chemicals and mining,” said Jason Goh, regional director of energy, ports and projects Asia.

“We have several FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) and wind projects being executed this year, and when we look at our supply chain service in the oil and gas sector, we are busy. Looking ahead, we have a solid pipeline in APAC,” the executive added.

Blue Water Shipping will be exhibiting at Breakbulk Europe 2023, taking place on 6-8 June at Rotterdam Ahoy. To reserve your tickets to the world’s largest gathering of breakbulk and project cargo professionals, click here.
