DaChan Bay Terminals Welcomes a New Asia Service
On 18 May, the berthing of “AMALTHEA” at DaChan Bay Terminals marks the commencement of the enhanced Seagull service of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) with a new weekly port call in Western Shenzhen.
The addition of DaChan Bay Terminals in the port rotation enhances the service which now offers coverage in both North and South China. The enhanced Seagull service offers direct connections to more ports in China, and exporters in South China can enjoy quick transit times to Vietnam, Thailand and other Asian countries to capture the opportunities brought by the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement which came into effect at the beginning of this year.
DaChan Bay Terminals Managing Director Brian Yeung said: “This is the third service of MSC at DaChan Bay Terminals and we are glad to enhance our collaboration with the world’s largest shipping line. It enhances our Asia network and offers customers more choices. We will work together to provide quality services for shippers as always.”
Five container vessels are deployed in the Seagull service. The service calls DaChan Bay Terminals every Monday with a port rotation of Shanghai – Ningbo – DaChan Bay – Vung Tau – Laem Chabang – Singapore – Tanjung Pelepas – Penang – Port Klang – Singapore – Tanjung Pelepas – Qinzhou – Hong Kong – Shanghai.
