Swire Shipping enjoys a rich heritage; at 150 years, we are the oldest operating entity of the Swire group. We started out as The China Navigation Company (CNCo) in 1872, operating paddle steamers on China’s Yangtze River. Swire Shipping was then the brand name for CNCo’s liner shipping services.
Over the years, the Swire Shipping brand has become synonymous with being a leader in providing sustainable liner shipping services in the Asia-Pacific. In October 2021, CNCo was renamed Swire Shipping Pte. Ltd. as part of a strategy to streamline our brands, and present customers and stakeholders with a consistent and unified experience. The China Navigation name is an important part of our heritage and remains the name of our holding company in the UK where we are called The China Navigation Company Ltd.
