Services Updates

ANL Expands the Pilbara Connection!

  • The ANL PAX Service continues to connect Australia’s Pilbara Region to the world.
  • PAX will now operate on three loops with a 10-day transit from Singapore to Port Hedland and a 9-day transit from Singapore to Dampier.
  • The expansion will provide customers with access to over 400 ports via the transshipment hub in Singapore allowing for global access from the Pilbara region.

Successfully servicing the Pilbara region since October 2020, ANL expanded the existing PAX service by adding an additional call to Dampier back in February 2021, effectively offering shortened supply chains, direct access to/from Port Hedland and Dampier, reduced road haulage and the opportunity to source product more cost effectively from other parts of Australia via Singapore.


Moving forward, PAX will operate on three loops with a 10-day transit from Singapore to Port Hedland, and a 9-day transit from Singapore to Dampier respectively. The updated service will operate as follows:

  • Loop One: Singapore, Darwin, Port Hedland, Dampier, Dili, Singapore
  • Loop Two: Singapore, Darwin, Dili, Singapore
  • Loop Three: Singapore, Dampier, Port Hedland, Dili, Singapore (all three loops totaling 21 days)

As part of the CMA CGM Group, our customers will also gain access to over 400 ports via the transshipment hub in Singapore, providing global access from the Pilbara region.


ANL’s Chief Executive Officer Shane Walden says, “ANL is committed to improving and enhancing our service between Asia and the Pilbara region by increasing the frequency and introducing additional ports such as Dampier. We see the tremendous potential for the region and the significant benefits in shortening supply chains, lowering costs, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and more. ANL is very enthusiastic about the Pilbara and the long-term partnerships with key customers throughout the region.”
