New Direct Connection Promises Faster Transit Times and Enhanced Reliability

In a significant development for the shipping industry, Ocean Network Express (ONE) is set to launch the ONE KCI service, providing a vital new direct connection between East Asia and Indonesia. With its maiden voyage scheduled to commence on October 10, 2023, this service is poised to transform trade dynamics and streamline supply chains.

Efficiency Redefined:

The ONE KCI service is designed to deliver efficiency and reliability to shippers, providing them with numerous advantages:

Direct Connections: The service will follow a 28-day round voyage, calling at key ports such as Busan (South Korea), Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo (all in China), Jakarta, Surabaya (both in Indonesia), Shekou, and Xiamen (China). This direct link between East Asia and Indonesia promises to simplify shipping and reduce transit times.

Enhanced Schedule Integrity: With fewer delays and disruptions anticipated, the ONE KCI service offers shippers a higher level of reliability, helping them better plan their logistics operations.

Increased Capacity: Operating with the 2,693 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) boxship TS Nansha, this service boasts substantial cargo capacity, catering to the growing demand for efficient shipping solutions.

Frequency and Speed: Shippers will benefit from increased frequency as the service operates weekly. Moreover, the 28-day round voyage is significantly faster than alternative routes, saving valuable time in the transportation of goods.

Boosting Trade Relations:

The launch of the ONE KCI service is expected to have a profound impact on trade between East Asia and Indonesia. By simplifying and expediting the shipping process, it will enable businesses to move their products more swiftly and efficiently across borders.

This development aligns with the broader trend of enhancing connectivity in the Asia-Pacific region, fostering economic growth, and facilitating the exchange of goods and services.
