Operations and Logistics manager for William & Goslings Limited Madhulesh Lakhan, said the shipping agency has played a major part in making Fiji “the hub of the Pacific” with regular services now being offered to the regions.

“A strong network of interna­tional agents and our affiliation to a number of reputable agencies – enables us to provide our clients with a full array of services rang­ing from door to door or simply port to port,” Mr Lakhan said.

“Our services include trans­port, customs brokerage, air­freight, ships agency, sea freight, weighbridge, packing materials and pallets,” he said.

“Increased visits of vessels should be utilised and welcomed by business houses because it al­lows more importation of prod­ucts and more cargo space for businesses.”

William and Goslings vessel movements had increased by 65 per cent in 2017.

William & Gosling was founded on February 1, 1921 and their ear­ly work involved piloting interna­tional vessels through Fiji waters which then expanded into steve­doring, haulage, ships agency, customs brokerage and later into airfreight, household removals and express freight.

Since then, the company has grown into one of Fiji’s largest, most dynamic freight forwarding and logistics providers.

Singapore container owned vessel, Southern Pearl GRT 5234 called in at the port of Lautoka two Wednesdays ago. He said 80 per cent of the containers from the vessel were offloaded at Suva.

“The container vessel was built in 2003 and currently sailing under the flag of Singapore. The vessel was in Suva Port on April 4, 2018 before then, the vessel was in Tarawa,” he said.

“The vessel’s next port of call is Wallis and Futuna, Majuri and Funafuti,” he said.
