Singapore: Orient Express Lines Singapore (OEL) will start a Straits Vietnam Straits (SVS) service on April 8.
The service will be jointly operated by OEL and Taiwan’s Yang Ming Marine Transport, each contributing a 1,800 teu ship.
Both the vessels would be scheduled for fixed day port calls at Haiphong, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore and Port Klang.
“This new venture would expand the OEL network in the South East Asia region, and onward to the South China area,” OEL said in a release.
“We are constantly monitoring key demand areas and are in continuous dialogue with our customers to jointly develop cost effective solutions,” Biju Oommen, OEL’s ceo told SeaShip News.
OEL has a fleet of owned and chartered tonnage and is further expanding the fleet by acquiring three 1,700 teu vessels during 2014. [02/04/14]
