About NPDL

THE SOUTH PACIFIC IS HOME TO NEPTUNE PACIFIC DIRECT LINE (NPDL). THE TEAM AT NPDL WORKS CONSTANTLY TO BUILD ON OUR REPUTATION FOR RELIABILITY AND LONG-TERM COMMITMENT TO DELIVERING LEGENDARY SERVICE TO OUR CUSTOMERS IN THE REGION

NPDL is part of The Wonderful Company, a US$4.6 billion international company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. Its other companies include FIJI Water, Justin and Landmark Vineyards, Vintage Nurseries, Wonderful Citrus, Wonderful Pistachios, Teleflora, POM Wonderful and Suterra.

NPDL was formed in 2020, when Neptune Pacific Line acquired Pacific Direct Line (PDL), bringing together two of the South Pacific’s top shipping and logistics companies to support the full supply chain of our customers in the region. The combination of Neptune and PDL brings a broad suite of supply chain services to customers, expanding on our legacies of being at the cutting edge of maritime transport technology to provide more comprehensive logistics options at sea, on land, and in the air.

Maritime transport and its associated industries remain at our core, to which end we have developed a network of professional, efficient shipping agencies and stevedoring operations throughout the Pacific Islands operating under the Transam brand. We have added Williams & Gosling (W&G), one of Fiji’s oldest and largest logistics providers, to our group since 2018. W&G provides trucking, airfreight, customs documentation, storage, waste removal, and pest control services to customers throughout Fiji. We’ve extended the CRS brand of container depots from New Zealand into Fiji and Tonga, with further depots planned. Pacific Bulk Fuels delivers fuels, oils, and lubricants throughout the Pacific Islands, and Transam Logistics provides customs clearance, export documentaion and trucking to help our customers make their last-mile connections on land. These add-on business units allow our philosophy of continuous improvement to flow through our entire operation from origin to destination. We also have a unique cooperation with Government of Samoa and own a 50% controlling interest in Pacific Forum Line (PFL). The PFL joint venture is managed by Neptune.

We have always been concerned with the socio-economic development of the Pacific Islands. Our expansive family of end-to-end supply chain businesses enable us to create jobs on shore and at sea, facilitate trade, and reduce dependency on imports by supporting export development and local manufacturing. In addition to our own broad network of shipping routes, we partner with shipping lines who serve other regions, linking our customers with an international network outside of the South Pacific. While NPDL’s core business has always been in the South Pacific, our services have expanded to connect with Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Europe and the Americas.
