Who We Are
Sofrana Unilines is a regional shipping line based in the South Pacific. For almost 50 years we have provided vital shipping links between New Zealand, Australia, and the South Pacific Islands.
The SOciété FRAnçaise de NAvigation had humble beginnings in 1968, shuttling a single small vessel between the French Overseas Territories of New Caledonia and Wallis & Futuna.
Independently or in joint ventures with other lines, today we operate a modern fleet of ten geared multi-purpose vessels on eight trade-lanes, servicing 21 ports in eleven countries.
What We Do
Sofrana offers tailor-made cargo shipping services to a wide range of clients including large corporate and industrial customers, other shipping lines, freight forwarders, trading houses, small exporters, and private individuals.
Since cargo mode availability can vary, Sofrana will customise a shipping solution for your specific cargo, depending on the trade-lane’s ship specifications and the handling infrastructure available at load and discharge ports.
If you aren’t located near one of Sofrana’s main load ports in New Zealand or Australia, we can arrange intermodal transport via road, rail or coastal shipping to connect with our international services.
Where We Go
Sofrana strives to provide a premium product to our customers, to create a point of difference from our niche market position, and to maintain our status as one of the most trusted and reliable regional operators in the South Pacific.
