Tasman Orient Line operates a modern fleet of nine vessels throughout the Asia Pacific region. Each multipurpose ship has a capacity of over 20,000t, many with tween-decks throughout for efficient space utilisation and cargo separation.

The ships are equipped with their own cargo cranes so are not dependent on onshore equipment. In addition to power points for reefer containers, the ships feature breakbulk-friendly cargo holds. Tasman Orient Line provides:

  • Extensive direct and tranship port coverage
  • Ad-hoc calls on inducement
