CNC strengthens intra-Asia network with three new services
CMA CGM Group’s intra-Asia shortsea specialist CNC is introducing three new services, namely TCC, PLM and SPX.
The first product TCC will offer direct connectivity from Central and South China to Sihanoukville in Cambodia. The service will also double-up as an alternative shipping option for China-bound cargoes from Thailand.
TCC will start its inaugural sailing on 20 March from Laem Chabang with the following rotation: Bangkok (Thailand) – Laem Chabang (Thailand) – Ningbo (China) – Shanghai (China) – Shekou (China) – Sihanoukville (Cambodia) – Bangkok.
Additionally, the PLM will call at Palembang, a niche Indonesia port located in South Sumatra. CNC said PLM will ship Indonesian exports such as rubber, plywood, fertiliser and coffee, shuttling between the ports of Singapore and Palembang from 15 March.
Furthermore, the weekly SPX will connect Singapore and the Mindanao region of the Philippines. SPX commenced its first voyage on 12 March from Singapore with the service rotation of Singapore – Davao (Philippines) – General Santos (Philippines) – Singapore.
