Pacific Basin is currently our biggest carrier. You’re top notch and the performance of your staff couldn’t be better

You are outstanding. When a PB ship turns up, I’m pretty much guaranteed there will be no issues.

You are always competitive and always willing to find solutions.

It’s fantastic that you have such a good understanding of our logs export industry and appreciate the importance of timing, health and safety, etc.

We have a very seamless relationship. Your team is responsive and we get answers in real time. It’s a great benefit having a PB office in our time zone.

You are a good partner for us from all perspectives including pricing, flexibility, performance, etc.

You showed much more flexibility than your competitors, and we appreciate your good cooperation.

We have a very successful exchange of market news and developments and other information.

I’m always asking Pacific Basin for rates and you help us by providing them. We normally fix and, when we do, all the post fixture service is amazing.

We are excited to partner with PB because of your sustainability and clean initiatives which we value in our partners.

Your team have been great to work with... they have a fantastic attitude, they get the job done, and they look after customers as well as PB’s own objectives.

You are very experienced and pragmatic. We export through multiple ports around New Zealand, and you know and understand the country and all these ports.

Port Stakeholder Testimonials

You purchased all new mooring lines prior to arrival which is evidence of a very prudent owner! Excellent Captain and Chief Officer. Officers and deck ratings’ performance was also excellent under very tiring conditions due to late stowage plan changes and additional warpings.

Your crew were professional and very cooperative. A very pleasant surprise to see Master in full safety gear on deck lashing logs along with the crew. We rarely see this type of leadership on a logs vessel.

Sincere thanks to you and your crew for allowing our PSC team to conduct valuable training. Your crew was extremely responsive and eager to accommodate our requests. The ship was in excellent condition, and all items that we tested were in excellent condition.

Pacific Basin vessels are renowned in the industry for their reliability. The Captain, Chief Officer and crew on this ship offered that little extra, showing how a professional, organised, well-mannered crew with a drive to maintain safety standards creates a culture of shared values, translating into good work practices and great results.

Your professional crew makes your 18-year old ship very clean and tidy, just like a 2 or 3-year old new ship.

The Captain and Chief Officer had a thorough knowledge of their vessel and were well versed in the intricacies of log loading. The Crew were well trained and drilled, happy, always smiling and willing to go the extra mile.
