APL to launch new Japan-Malaysia-Vietnam service

Container carrier APL has unveiled a new Japan-Malaysia-Vietnam (JMV) service that will provide weekly connectivity between North Asia and Southeast Asia.

“The JMV service will offer one of the most comprehensive North Asian market coverage comprising five Japanese main ports as well as Hong Kong, Shekou and Taiwan. Shippers from Kanto and Kansai regions will also find an alternative access to Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam via the JMV service and vice versa,” APL said.

The new JMV service will commence sailing from Japan’s Osaka on 17 June.

The port rotation will be Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya, Yokohama, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Port Klang (N), Port Klang (W), Singapore, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong, Shekou, Kaohsiung, and back to Osaka.

APL is part of France’s CMA CGM Group, which recently announced a rationalisation of its global brand structure with APL and ANL in a $1.5bn cost control programme.
