Pacific International Lines (PIL) is a Singaporean company offering logistics services worldwide. Its main focus is on shipping container transport. It serves around 500 ports in around a hundred countries, and employs some 18,000 workers. If you’d like your goods to be transported with PIL, TSL can arrange shipping container transport with this company for you – just get in touch via our website to initiate the process.
Like many global shipping lines, PIL’s network is extensive, covering the Far East, Europe, Black Sea, Red Sea/Gulf, Indian subcontinent, Canada, Africa, Latin America, Oceania and the USA’s West Coast. As well as container cargo, PIL can transport oversized and overweight consignments that cannot fit into standard containers.
The company started out with just four vessels back in 1967. It has now grown into one of the largest shipping lines in Singapore: it currently has a fleet of over 180 vessels with an overall capacity of 500,000 TEUs (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units).
PIL’s Shipping Containers
PIL can ship cargo in general purpose shipping containers of the standard 8 ft x 8.6 ft x 20/40 ft size. High-cube containers, which are an extra foot tall, are also used for larger consignments, and it also counts open-top and flat-rack boxes among its equipment.
PIL is represented in Australia by agencies in Adelaide, Bell Bay, Brisbane, Fremantle, Melbourne, Mildura and Sydney. Nine of its service lines link Australia directly with Asia and New Zealand. In Australia, its vessels call at the ports of Adelaide, Brisbane, Burnie, Devonport, Darwin, Fremantle, Gladstone, Melbourne, Sydney and Townsville.
