Regional Container extends intra-Asian network
Regional Container Line (RCL) has introduced the South Philippines 6 (RSP6) service that connects the Philippines’ Visayas and Mindanao regions with Asia and the Middle East via Singapore.
Launched in the Philippines through RCL’s Southern Philippine agent Eagle Express Lines, the fixed-day weekly service made its first port call at the Mindanao Container Terminal (MCT) in late December. The service is operated by two vessels and covers the Singapore – Cebu – Cagayan – Singapore route.
The vessels turn in Singapore, which serves as a transhipment hub and provides connections from Cebu, Cagayan de Or and Zamboanga to other Southeast Asian markets, the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East, while additionally serving the markets further north such as China and South Korea. (cd)
