K Line Upgrades Northern Vietnam RoRo Service

Japanese shipping company Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) plans to enhance its Asia/Vietnam Roll-on/Roll-of (RoRo) service in an effort to “accommodate increased demand for RoRo transportation to Vietnam.”

According to the company, the service enhancement for North Vietnam port includes high-frequency, fixed day and direct calling from all Asian ports.

Port rotation for Trunk Line Express Service, Asia/Vietnam Line is as follows: Jakarta (Indonesia), Singapore (Singapore), Port Kelang (Malaysia), Laem Chabang (Thailand), Ho Chi Minh, Haiphong, (Vietnam).

K Line has changed the service’s Northern discharging port from Vietnamese Cai Lan to Haiphong.

The company said it will deploy the 12,308 dwt vehicles carrier Jasa Bakti as well as one additional vessel.

The service is expected to start on October 16, 2016, with the vessel’s arrival in Laem Chabang.

The service frequency will be changed from one sailing to two sailings per month.
