SINGAPORE: October 20, 2017. CMA CGM Group subsidiaries APL and Cheng Lie Navigation (CNC) have launched a new Korea China Straits (KCS) box service connecting China, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Kaohsiung Terminal TaiwanThe weekly rotation will link Nansha in South China to the Straits of Singapore, Port Klang and Indonesia; provide transit between Indonesia and Manila; and call at Lianyungang in China's Jiangsu province.

APL said the launch of the service from Dalian on November 18 would include five Panamax vessels in a capacity sharing agreement with CNC and enable the carrier to reinforce its intra-Asia footprint.

Meanwhile on November 14 CNC is introducing its first direct service from four ports in China to Semarang, Indonesia; and from Xiamen to Ho Chi Minh and three port calls in Indonesia.

In a related move, APL has renewed its terminal lease at the Port of Kaohsiung, Taiwan (right) for another 10 years from January 01, 2018.

"Today, Intra-Asia container volume accounts for one- sixth of all containers moved globally. We see further growth prospects in this trade where APL is seeking to be a major player," said CEO Nicolas Sartini. "Our terminal in the Port of Kaohsiung will therefore be strategic for our advancement in Intra-Asia where we are connecting the key markets of Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam amongst others via the relay hub today."

The terminal is used by CMA CGM group vessels up to 14,000 TEU and has an annual capacity of 1.5 million containers.
