Seacorp Coastal Shipping
Seacorp has a long-term State Government contract to provide coastal shipping services which link North West ports with Fremantle and Darwin. The shipping services, which run on regular 17 day cycles, sail between Fremantle, Dampier, Port Hedland, Broome, Wyndham and Darwin.
Seacorp won the Western Australian Government tender for this shipping service against major national and international listed organisations. The independent company's success in winning this tender is testimony to its ability to offer a total package that delivers economic, environmental and social benefits for the region.
Part of the Seacorp shipping package includes contributions to the national Coast Watch program and the Weather Watch scheme and committing the Kimberley Rose for pilot training.
Seacorp also draws on its association with Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) - the second largest container operator in the world - to offer shippers and importers a gateway to and from the rest of the world. This allows cargo to be shipped to/from the North West via Fremantle to any of the 270 ports serviced in MSC's worldwide network.
This coastal shipping service is delivering significantly reduced freight costs, is helping to improve the viability of marginal businesses and can guarantee reliability of supply during the wet season when roads are closed.
The vessel, MV Kimberley Rose has an unimpeded deck length of 70 metres and is ideally suited to transporting non-time sensitive and “awkward over-dimensional cargoes.” It is equipped with two 80-tonne cranes, located on the portside, which can be operated in tandem and lift 160 tonne.
