new service that calls at major ports in Asia
NORTHPORT (M) Bhd has recently
launched a new service, CMIX Intra-Asia Service, which calls at
major ports in the Asian region.
The service is rendered by Shanghai
Puhai Shipping Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China Shipping Group.
The service is currently operated
by two vessels servicing routes starting from Shanghai, Ningbo,
Shekou, Singapore, Port Klang (Northport), Jakarta and Hong Kong.
The first vessel, Westertal, has
made its maiden call at Northport, Port Klang on July 29.
Northport told StarBiz the
maiden call marked another accomplishment for the port, in line with
its aim to support more intra-Asia services.
Northport is working very closely
with Shanghai Puhai to bring in more cargoes in the future.
Shanghai Puhai Malaysia managing
director Captain Lee Zhi Gang said: “We are extremely happy with the
synergy with Northport.
“This co-operation between Shanghai
Puhai and Northport would increase the intra-Asia cargo volumes,” he
Northport is the nation's largest
multipurpose port that offers extensive connectivity by linking more
than 100 shipping lines to over 300 ports worldwide.
