Pendulum Express Lines (PEL) commenced business in 2001 offering various feeder services as a vessel operator and currently have over 10 weekly scheduled feeder services in the South East Asian region. PEL is recognized as an emerging player in the feeder business and have extensive growth plans to be positioned as one of the most desired feeder carriers in the market in the coming years.
For its foray into India, Pendulum Express Lines appointed Aissa Maritime as their exclusive agents in India. Aissa Maritime provides feeder agency services to PEL at Nhava Sheva and Mundra locations.
Starting with slot purchase on the Pakistan Indian Xpress (PIX) service of a consortium led by PIL, with calls at Nhava Sheva and Mundra, PEL has quickly expanded its presence in India with the commencement of a long haul service linking India to North China. With consortium partners Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), CMA-CGM, KMTC, SCI the new service North Asia India Sub Continent (NISC) has a port rotation Xingang, Qingdao, Ningbo, Singapore, Port Klang West, Nhava Sheva, Mundra, Hazira, Colombo, Port Klang West, Singapore and back to Xingang.
The NISC is expected to provide a platform for NVOCCs to gain access to the North China ports and both Aissa Maritime and Pendulum are working hard to develop this important trade lane. In addition, it also provides Hazira based shippers access to Colombo, Port Klang and Singapore.
