NYK Restructures Its Japan-Thailand-India Service
February 22, 2013
NYK has decided to restructure its Japan–Thailand–India service.
After the restructure, NYK’s existing HLS Service will be delinked at Laem Chabang, forming a Japan–Thailand shuttle service (LNS) and Thailand–India shuttle service (New HLS).
NYK will thus be able to provide a competitive and stable service from Thailand to India and Pakistan, where demand is growing, with a new direct call to the port of Karachi. NYK will also continue its commitment to Japan–India cargo through transshipment via Singapore.
Japan–Thailand will be covered by the LNS service, which will continue to provide a competitive service, while transit time between Japan and Ho Chi Minh will be improved after the city is included in both the southbound and northbound LNS service.
