China Shipping and MCC launch Myanmar service

Shanghai: China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) and MCC Transport, a subsidiary of AP Moeller-Maersk Group, plan to launch services between China and Myanmar with direct services from Shanghai to Yangon on January 25 to meet growing trade demand.

The two shipping lines will deploy smaller vessels to bypass the need to transfer cargo in Singapore or Malaysia.

According to statistics from Word Trade Organisation, trade between Myanmar and China grew an average 16% a year between 2009 and 2013. [18/01/15]
