Regional Container Lines (RCL) and Gold Star Lines are launching a new service connecting Port Klang, Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City.

The new service, RHS03, targets companies relocating production to Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries. It will commence on 18 August from Ho Chi Minh City with a 900 teu vessel.

An RCL spokesperson commented, “With companies relocating their supply chains to South East Asia and Vietnam in particular, both our COC and SOC customers alike have requested us to improve our sailing frequency and connectivity between Ho Chi Minh to Singapore and Port Klang.

“This new service will complement the RHS1 for Ho Chi Minh/Singapore/Ho Chi Minh by providing our customers with both a mid and end week window ex Ho Chi Minh for their connections in Singapore and Port Klang to the rest of the network for both SOC and COC customers”.
