BTL, MOL and RCL in Thai - Chennai link

Singapore: Mitsui OSK Line, Bengal Tiger Lines and Regional Container Lines are launching a new service linking Thailand with Chennai, India. The three lines will be starting the service on March 23 each deploying three 1,100 teu vessels. The service will link Laem Chabang with Chennai, with calls at Singapore, Port Klang and Penang. The new service represents an expansion for common feeder shuttle operator BTL. "Whilst our philosophy remains to run direct shuttle connections, we realize that some longer haul requirements are required but if we can double dip over Singapore then this will undoubtedly provide us more revenue," said Joachim von der Heydt, chairman of BTL.
