Payment terms for shipments of cars and other motor vehicles to Tarawa

Due to a high incidence of the abandonment of cars and other motor vehicles post-shipment to the port of Tarawa, Swire Shipping will only accept shipments of motor vehicles to Tarawa on the basis of freight pre-payment at the port of loading. 

Full payment of freight must be received by Swire Shipping 4days in advance of the advertised vessel’s arrival at the port of loading.

Our Customer Service team will provide a freight invoice once cargo details have been confirmed as final to allow for payment to be arranged.

Regretfully, Swire Shipping will not load the cargo if freight is not received according to the cut-off and will further consider the booking cancelled unless otherwise advised. All associated costs resulting from cancellations will be for the account of the shipper.  

Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Service teams for assistance.
