NYK expands containership line in Asia

NYK has expanded its service network linking Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam. The company’s previous service for this area, the Phoenix Service, will be renamed the Phoenix 1 Service, and a new Phoenix 2 Service will be added to provide a more stable transportation network that meets the increasing demand for container transport between Japan and Southeast Asia.
 
This new service will be independently operated by NYK using three 2,700 TEU containerships in the latter part of March. Transit time between Kobe and Laem Chabang will be particularly short — only six days, the fastest in the market.
 
NYK will continue its efforts to provide its customers with an expanded range of transportation services offering comprehensive coverage and greater service quality.
