RCL launching Colombo - Tuticorin service

Regional Container Lines (RCL) is launching its first service from Colombo to Tuticorin.

The RCL Colombo - Tuticorin service (RTC) will serve the two ports twice weekly with the inaugural sailing on 8 January with the vessel Charlie.

Charlie Chu, RCL evp business said “Introducing this new service to the market is in response to main line operators requesting for more feedering options.

“Being a feeder company, we have been strongly encouraged by main line operators forecasting an increase in volume who are using Colombo as a transhipment hub, which prompted this move”.
