Japanese shipping company Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has unveiled plans to launch a new containership service of China Saigon Indonesia (CSI) services.
The company said that the service will have direct port coverage from China to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and Indonesia.
“This ensures faster transit time especially to Ho Chi Minh, Jakarta and Semarang compared with current transship product and expanded service network,” K Line said, adding that it would deploy a vessel by itself on the service.
A total of four boxships, with a carrying capacity of 2500 TEUs, will be deployed on the new containership service.
K Line said that the port rotation will be Qingdao (China) – Shanghai – Ningbo – Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam) – Jakarta (Indonesia) – Semarang – Xiamen (China) – Qingdao.
The service is scheduled to start on December 26 from Qingdao.
