CNC, a shipping company that handles all CMA CGM group and its subsidiaries’
intra Asia trade will soon launch (November 18) a new weekly Korea China
Straits (KCS) service serving China, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and
the Philippines.


CNC said the weekly service linking Nansha in South China to the Straits of
Singapore and Port Klang as well as Indonesia, will “offer superior transit
between Indonesia and Manila; and call Lianyungang in Jiangsu, where few
carriers provide access to”.


 “The KCS service will reinforce CNC footprint
in Intra-Asia where the carrier seeks to fortify its presence as a leading
ocean carrier. The offering injects new capacity that allows CNC to transport
shipments from North Asia to its network of ports across Southeast Asia.


“It also offers yet another option that shippers can leverage for market
access and competitive advantage.”


The KCS service will be operated with more than five Panamax vessels.


Commencing its first southbound sailing from Dalian on 18 November 2017, the
KCS service will call the ports of Dalian, Xingang, Lianyungang, Kwangyang,
Pusan, Shanghai, Nansha, Singapore, Port Klang, Jakarta, Surabaya and
Manila.
