THAILAND's Regional Container Lines (RCL) is revamping a string of intra-Asia services in collaboration with its partners, including Ocean Network Express (ONE). These two partners are upgrading the capacity of their Thailand to Indonesia services, RTI 1 and RTI 2, by deploying larger vessels.

On the RTI 1, RCL will provide the 2,800 TEU Racha Bhum and ONE will deploy a second vessel. On the RTI 2, the companies plan to deploy a pair of 4,200 TEU vessels.



'The higher capacity in both the RTI1 and RTI2 will help to meet growing traffic between Thailand and Indonesia going forward,' RCL said, reported Seatrade Maritime News, Colchester.



RCL will also take over operation of the Thailand - Vietnam - China service (RBH) from ONE by deploying the 1,000 TEU Danu Bhum in addition to the 1,000 TEU ALS Satsuki. A call in Nansha will also replace Hong Kong. The new port rotation is: Bangkok, Thai Sugar Terminal, Haiphong, Nansha, Shekou, Bangkok, Thai Sugar Terminal.



'RCL is excited with the growing opportunities in Haiphong and our ability to expand our participation in this trade. The addition of Nansha call too will bring us closer to our customers and provide them the convenience of a direct call,' said RCL.



Meanwhile RCL and its partners ONE, Xpress Feeders and Cosco, will merge their TCX and TSC services between Thailand and India, which will be branded RMB and will be operated with four 5,500 TEU vessels, plus Kattupalli will be added as port of call.



An RCL spokesperson commented: 'The RMB will be the only direct service between Thailand and east Indian ports of Chennai and Kattupalli.'
