Pacific Basin Shipping Ltd of Hong Kong is an operator of a huge fleet of 222 Handysize and Handymax bulk carriers. Handysize bulkers are defined as less than 40,000 dwt whereas Handymax bulkers are in the range of 40,000 dwt to 50,000 dwt. This is all the more remarkable in that it has been achieved from a standing start in 1987 over the period of the last 27 years in Hong Kong. Diversification into ro-ro shipping and harbour and offshore towage has also been achieved, with a current fleet of 45 tugs and seven barges operating in Australian ports, the North Western Australia offshore oil and gas fields, and in Fujairah and Dubai. PB Sea- Tow with offices in Sydney and Auckland provide extensive project cargo and module transport between Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the South Pacific regions.
