Transworld Group of Companies (TGC), an international logistics and shipping specialist, announced in December that it had awarded a $80m shipbuilding contract to Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard (GWS) in a ceremony held at the company's headquarters in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai.

The vessels are suited for TGC's primary short sea routes that provide a weekly connection for container trade from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Colombo, and the Middle East to Hub port of Jebel Ali.

The contract, which was signed by company officials including He Fang, deputy director, China Shipbuilding Trading Company, and Yin Xueming, chairman, GWS, outlines schedule of delivery for two feeder container vessels.
