Gothong Southern Shipping handles special project cargo (SPC) for oil drilling equipments from Cebu to Albay. Gothong Southern Shipping Lines continues to be one of the leading shipping companies in the local shipping industry in terms of profitable growth. With reliable vessel schedules to and from four major cities in the Philippines using a fleet of young vessels and brand new facilities and equipments at very competitive rates, it is no surprise that GS customers continue to grow in numbers. Though the bulk of GS shipments are containerized cargoes, GS vessels have been used quite a few times to transport non-containerized cargoes either thru vessel chartering or as supplement cargo to any of its regular trade routes. Sometime back, GS was commissioned by DESCO Project Management to transfer Chevron's oil drilling machineries, including platforms and other related heavy equipments and trucks from their abandoned site in Aloquinsan Cebu to one of their drilling sites in Tabaco, Albay.The charter service, which took off from the port of Cebu and on to Aloguinsan to pick up the break bulk cargoes that were eventually discharged at the port of Tabaco, Albay took about 6 days. GS executives accompanied the GS crew all the way to Tabaco to ensure a safe and efficient transport of these heavy machineries. With the arrival of newer and bigger M/V DAS 5, GS' capability to transport bigger and and more complex equipments faster across greater distances has been strengthened.
