Panalipina launched three weekly less-than-containerload ocean services from Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines to Singapore, as the Swiss forwarder strengthens intra-Asia connections to its top Asian hub.
The service provided by in-house carrier Pantainer Express Line allows customers to ship from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in three days; from Haiphong, Vietnam, in six days; and from Cebu, Phippines, in nine days. Through the service, customers don’t have to hold back an order waiting to fill a full container, nor do they have to spend as much using air services, Panalpina said.
“Intra Asia plays a pivotal role in our global LCL network and in the group’s growth strategy. We are constantly adding new services through our in-house carrier Pantainer Express Line in this fast growing market to simplify and extend access for our customers,” said Carsten Meyer, the company’s global head of ocean freight LCL.
