NYK expands sea freight service linking Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam

NYK has announced plans to expand 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.

The service will be independently operated by NYK using three 2,700 TEU containerships in the latter part of March. Transit time between Kobe, Japan, and Laem Chabang, Thailand, is expected to take only six days.
