A/S Thor Dahl Shipping of Sanderjord, Norway has purchased South Pacific InterLine (SPI) from Reederi AB Gotland of Visby, Sweden.
Thor Dahl Shipping assigned its San Francisco-based shipping company, South Seas Steamship (SSS), full responsiblity for managing SPI's vessels, including scheduling and port calls into Tahiti, American Samoa, Western Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia, Australia, Papua New Guinea and Hawaii.
Under the cooperative agreement, both SSS and SPI will maintain separate identities.
SSI has already taken steps to rationalize the service. The 450- TEU Kochnev will be replaced with a larger and faster vessel that will join the 700-TEU Moana Pacific in a rotation that cuts round-trip transit time by nearly a week between North America, the Pacific Islands and Australia.
SSS added the 256-TEUApoZZo to make dedicated calls directly between Southern California and Pago Pago, where it primarily serves the tuna cannery there.
