Shipping and Vessel Operations

Westlink has operated various vessels for project and breakbulk cargo/equipment for over 20 years. Westlink has run regular liner and spot shipping services around Asia, USA and Australia, supporting energy, resource and infrastructure projects and operations with containerised, breakbulk, out of gauge and heavy lift ocean transportation solutions. This experience led to the development of expert chartering, commercial, operations and technical departments comprised of both maritime and logistics professionals and underpinned by robust in house vessel and HSEQ management systems that were compliant with all the necessary flag state and other maritime codes.


This vessel operating capability has expanded to other vessels including, but not limited to, container ships, tugs, barges, and platform supply vessels. The experience and expertise enables Westlink to provide our Clients with customised marine solutions which can meet the requirements of their project or operation but with the assurance of HSEQ performance and cost competitiveness.
