Hanjin Shipping starts first direct service from Vietnam to North Europe

Seoul: Hanjin Shipping is starting the first non-stop direct service from Vietnam to North Europe.
Hanjin Shipping, having already started direct services from Vietnam to U.S. East and West Coast respectively last year, will be introducing the fastest qualified service connecting Vietnam and North Europe by adding Vung Tau to its current NE5 (Asia North Europe Service 5) effective middle of October.
Hanjin Shipping comments, "We are pleased to initiate this non-stop direct service from Vietnam to North Europe. As a result, we will be able to reduce current transit time from Vietnam to North Europe from 23 to 19 days allowing our customers to have the fastest and easier access to the concerned regions. We are also very pleased that we will be able to contribute to promoting the trade between those nations in future."  
Meanwhile, Hanjin Shipping is currently developing a dedicated terminal in Vietnam's Vung Tau region targeting to open next year.  [16/09/10]
