Recommencing sailings in 2000, Jebsens Trans-Pacific Shipping Services (JTSS or Transpac) renewed Jebsens’ presence in the trade route between the North American West Coast and Australia/New Zealand where the company’s Pacific trading first began in 1969.
In 2008, Transpac teamed up with MUR of Sydney, Australia to form a joint operation called JebMur offering monthly sailings both ways cross the Pacific between North America and the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. JebMur also provides service from the Far East to the North American West Coast on inducement.
The frequency of the Pacific service is approximately every 30 days covering a wide range of bulk cargoes such as various types of fertilizers, sulphur, rice, scrap, petcoke and soda ash amongst others in the southbound direction and on inducement moving steel products, wire rods, coal, sugar and various types of ores northbound.
JebMur utilises the worldwide office network of Jebsens and MUR in major shipping centers such as Sydney, Melbourne, New York, Dubai, Copenhagen, New York, Vancouver, London and Bergen amongst others to service clients. This means that we are convenient to contact in every time zone.
Vessels operated in the service are modern, craned bulk carriers ranging from 25,000 to 45,000 dwt in size partly controlled by JebMur and partly time-chartered from the market for short or medium term durations.
