Far Shipping Lanka (FSL), a fully owned subsidiary of Hemas Holdings Plc has been appointed as the Exclusive Shipping Agent for Far Shipping Lines (FSL), Singapore.
Maintaining a presence in Colombo since 2002 and currently operating four services, FSL remains the only feeder from the top common carrier operators which maintains all services exclusively to the Port of Colombo.
Far Shipping launched its operations in 2002 with a mission to provide a reliable feeder service to the Main Liners operating in the Indian subcontinent and West Asia. FSL initially launched feeder services linking the Port of Colombo with the Indian Sub-Continent.
Our aim is to build customer confidence over a period of time by establishing regular and reliable service patterns. Far Shipping Lanka has maintained services to areas where other operators have not maintained consistent services, thereby earning a reputation as the most savvy common carrier operators to certain ISC ports. FSL connects these ports to Colombo exclusively contributing to its Transshipment volume.
Hemas Group's determination to have a maritime presence is supported by a fundamental philosophy to explore and discover new business horizons. This further demonstrates the Group's desire to support the Colombo Port's status of Hub Port for South Asia through the involvement of the feeder business. Hemas will facilitate FSL in Colombo and look at supporting it in every way to enhance FSL services in Colombo.
