RCL, Yang Ming to launch new Southeast Asian service

RCL, Yang Ming to launch new Southeast Asian service
Thailand’s Regional Container Lines (RCL) and Taiwan’s Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp will launch a new joint service connecting Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The RCL Thailand-Belawan (RTB) service will connect Bangkok, Singapore, Belawan, Port Klang, and the maiden voyage will commence on 22 June from Singapore.

RCL and Yang Ming will contribute one vessel each in this two-vessel rotation service.

“This service will provide a more stable schedule for Bangkok with the addition of a second vessel in the rotation. Dipping in Port Klang allows customers to choose between Singapore and Port Klang for their transhipment requirement from Belawan,” RCL said.

RCL added that the service also provides a direct ride through between Bangkok and Belawan and vice versa.
