Interasia Lines to Launch China - Chennai Direct Service

*New China-Chennai direct service (ICI3)
Interasia Lines is pleased to announce a new China-Chennai direct service to be named  ICI3 (Interasia-China-India Service 3) commencing the end of January 2018.

 ICI3 will run on 35 days round trip, with port callings at Shanghai – Ningbo – Hong Kong - Shekou – Singapore – Port Klang (Westport & Northport) – Chennai – Kattupalli – Port Klang (Northport) – Singapore – Shanghai

 The maiden voyage is expected westbound calling Shanghai on 23rd January 2018 and eastbound calling Chennai on 8th February 2018, with a total of 5 vessels of Panamax design. Interasia Lines with Cosco Shipping Lines and X-Press Feeders shall each contribute one vessel with Wan Hai Lines contributing two vessels. X-Press Feeders shall further co-share the vessel with Orient Overseas Container Line.

With this new ICI3, Interasia Lines will begin its coverage of the East India market with vessel participation. This marks another milestone for its commitment to India trade by complementing its existing direct service calling West India at Nhava Sheva.

By providing shippers with more options of direct services between China and India via Straits area calling in both directions, it will also enhance Interasia Lines’ market expansion to better serve customers’ needs.
