SINGAPORE-HEADQUARTERED Ocean Network Express (ONE) has unveiled two new operating services, the China Thailand Philippines (CTP) and the China Indonesia Malaysia 2 (CIM2) in its latest move to boost its Intra-Asia network.
The new CTP replaces the Thailand -Vietnam -Philippines (TPV) service jointly operated by ONE and Regional Container Lines (RCL). The new revamped service has been extended to include China and Korea port calls and will be served by four 2,700 TEU vessels.
The revamped service will provide one of the most competitive transit times in the market, with only 6 days transit time from Shanghai to Laem Chabang. The CTP service starts with the sailing of the MOL Seabreeze 0162N/S, which departed Laem Chabang on April 5, 2021.
The CTP rotation is: Qingdao, Pusan, Shanghai, Laem Chabang, Cai Mep, Manila and returning to Qingdao.
The CIM2 service will be launched on April 19 and is operated in partnership with OOCL and Goldstar Lines. The new service will provide four 2800/4250 TEU vessels to complement the existing CIM service and connect different regions in China to Indonesia and Malaysia. The CIM2 service starts with the OOCL’s MV Savanna V403S/N departing form Qingdao.
The CIM2 service rotation is: Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Da Chan Bay, Jakarta, Surabaya, Port Kelang and returning to Qingdao.
“The addition of these new services will increase ONE’s presence in the intra-Asia market and provide our customers with reliable and efficient transport solutions,” ONE said in a statement.
