Panalpina adds additional Intra Asia LCL services

Panalpina has announced the launch of six new direct Less than Container Load (LCL) services through its in-house carrier Pantainer Express Line.

The new guaranteed weekly services all run out of Shanghai (China), separately connecting to Keelung (Taiwan), Manila (Philippines), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Bangkok (Thailand), Singapore and Jakarta (Indonesia). The new services meet increased customer demand for reliable LCL solutions on the Intra Asia trade.

The company said the six new guaranteed weekly services have been launched to meet increased customer demand especially in the consumer, high-tech and telecom industry and to strengthen Panalpina's position in the LCL market on the Intra Asia trade. The services to Bangkok and Singapore have already existed, but have now been upgraded to two and three sailings respectively per week.

The new LCL services are part of Panalpina's long term strategy to grow business on key Asia trade lanes, especially on the Far East Westbound, Transpacific Eastbound, Intra Asia, Asia to Latin America and Asia to Middle East trade.

"Intra Asia plays a pivotal role in our global LCL network and in the Group's growth strategy and we are committed to delivering new solutions that meet our customers supply chain needs," commented Frank Hercksen, Global Head of Ocean Freight at Panalpina.
