Famous Pacific Positioned with Global Coverage

FAMOUS Pacific Shipping (FPS) now has representation in 22 countries, with more than 40 offices worldwide under the FPS banner, the company said.

FPS was established in the early 1990s, when the directors of Famous Freight (Singapore), Pacific Bridge (Hong Kong) and Leo Transport (Thailand) agreed to pool their respective networks and expertise to form what is now one of the fastest growing global networks providing freight services.

Benny Ling, chairman of the FPS Group said: "Our development as a group over the past 10 years has been remarkable. Our main aim was to become a global operator, with representation in all of the world's major cargo gateways.

"Whilst there are still a few gaps in the network, we are able to offer global coverage and remain committed to recruiting additional members.

"New partnerships are vital to our ambitious growth plans in which our ever-expanding global network of services and partners is playing such an important part," he added.

FPS is well established in the key Asian markets and continues to expand its global presence and develop new business. It has recently announced enhanced service developments in China, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Spain and Portugal.

In the last year, the FPS network has been responsible for the movement of more than 120,000 TEU, of which around 30 per cent was intra-Asian, 8 per cent transpacific, 11 per cent Australia/ New Zealand, 28 per cent Mediterranean and 20 per cent between Asia and Europe (3 per cent for others).

This year, the forecast is for the global network's volumes to increase significantly although intra-Asia is likely to remain the dominant leg.
