Singapore-based Samudera Shipping Line has sealed a deal to acquire a pair of newbuild containerships. The company said on Friday that came to an agreement on 23rd of December 2022 for the acquisition of two newbuild container vessels from an unrelated third party.

The aggregate acquisition price is approximately US$66,000,000, as the company states.

The ships, each with a capacity of 1,900 TEUs, are expected to be delivered in fourth quarter of 2024 and early 2025.

“The acquisition of the new vessels is not expected to have any material impact on the net tangible assets and earnings per share of the Group for the financial year ended 31 December 2022”, as Samudera Shipping Line highlights.

Samudera Shipping Line was established in 1993 to provide feeder services between Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Since then, the company became a leading operator of regional shipping services, connecting Southeast Asia with the rest of the world.
