RCL and MCC Transport in slot exchange

RCL and MCC Transport in slot exchange
Regional Container Lines (RCL) and Maersk Line’s MCC Transport have agreed a slot exchange on services from Thailand and Vietnam to Hong Kong.

RCL will provide slots to MCC Transport on its RBS service from Hong Kong to the Port Authority of Thailand (PAT) and Laem Chabang, while RCL will be taking slots on MCC Transport’s IA7 service from Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh City. The slot exchange will start on 16 May.

“This exchange is a win-win scenario for both RCL and MCC.  We have recently adjusted our RBS schedule by dropping Ho Chi Minh while adding PAT in response to our customer’s desire for greater frequency, faster transit time as well as PAT coverage,” said a spokesman for RCL.
