NYK Announces Upgrade of Its Japan-Indonesia and Japan-Vietnam Services

February 22, 2013

NYK is pleased to announce the upgrade of its Japan–Indonesia and Japan–Vietnam services.
 
The new Japan–Indonesia service will allow NYK to cater to cargo moving between Japan and Jakarta. Port rotations in the new PGS-1 and PGS-2 services have been refined to improve the transit time to Jakarta from Japan’s Kanto region (i.e., Tokyo, Yokohama, Kawasaki) and keep competitive the transit time from Japan’s Kansai region (i.e., Kobe, Osaka).
 
For NYK’s Japan–Vietnam service, Ho Chi Minh and Haiphong will receive direct calls in the new LNS service and VLS service, respectively. In fact, to better meet the needs of customers the VLS service will include calls at the port of Haiphong instead of Cai Lan in North Vietnam. In addition, connections for Japanese exports to Taiwan and North Vietnam from ports in Hokkaido and along the Japan Sea will be greatly improved with the inclusion of Pusan, where goods are often transshipped.
