Pacific International Lines (PIL) has introduced a new weekly direct service connecting ports in China, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The new service, known as China Thailand Vietnam Service (CTV), will commence on 29 June 2022 from Tianjin Xingang, China, and will be served jointly by a consortium of vessels with an average capacity of 2,000 TEU.
Tonnie Lim, chief trade officer of PIL, said, “Following our recent rebranding exercise, we are pleased to announce this series of new launch of PIL’s Intra Asia Services dedicated to expanding our network coverage within Asia. With the addition of this new CTV service, our coverage in Asia would have been significantly enhanced, enabling us to offer linkages from all the major ports in China, Korea to Southeast Asia, and then onto the rest of our global network.”
The port rotation of the new service will be the following:
Xingang (China) – Dalian (China) – Incheon (South Korea) – Qingdao (China) – Shanghai (China) – Laem Chabang (Thailand) – Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam) – Xingang (China)
