RCL extends its RSK7 North East Asia/South East Asia service

The move by the Thailand-based carrier reflects the strong growth in trade between southern China and South East Asia and partly reflects the shift of manufacturing capacity out of China to this region.

 

“Dongguan will be the first direct call between Guangdong province and Cambodia,” said a RCL spokesperson. “There has been a growing demand by Pearl River Delta customers to call directly in Guangdong for faster connectivity on time sensitive raw material shipments, particularly for producing garments and footwear to Cambodia.”

 

The spokesperson also stressed the importance of the new schedule to Thailand-based exporters. “Our wood product customers in Songhkla will enjoy better connectivity via Dongguan to the Pearl River Delta beacause of that port’s comprehensive network of barge services,” she said.

 

WCN understands that the service will be maintained with ships loading between 600 and 700TEU with the new ports to be included in the itinerary from mid-November.

 

The revised weekly itinerary will include direct calls in Keelung, Taichung, Dongguan, Hong Kong, Sihanoukville, Songkhla, Hong Kong and return to Keelung.
