VSC expands service network to South Korea, Vietnam, and China
Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company (VSC), part of the Global Ports Group, located in the port of Vostochny in Primorsky Krai, Russia, has announced the launch of a new regular container service operated by SITC shipping line.
SITC launched the service from VSC to South Korea, China, and Vietnam at the end of July 2022. The first vessel handled at the VSC terminal was SITC Inchon with a capacity of 1,032 TEU.
Ports of rotation include Busan in South Korea, Tianjin Xingang, Qingdao, Lianyungang, Ningbo and Shanghai in China, Haiphong in Vietnam, Shekou and Wenzhou in China.
“New possibilities for cooperation with shipping lines and the expansion of the geography of services through VSC allow our clients to optimise the cost and time of cargo delivery,” commented Igor Pukhov, chief commercial officer of Global Ports.
“With the launch of SITC service, VSC customers have access to a wide network of rotation ports in the Asia-Pacific region. This is an important advantage for exporters and importers who have faced difficulties after the withdrawal of a number of lines from the Russian market,” he added.
