The Central loop will cover Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Ho Chi Minh, Laem Chabang, Hong Kong, Shanghai with 3 x 2800 TEU sized vessels.

“We are delighted to partner OOCL, Yang Ming and Gold Star Line in both raising our level of joint cooperation between carriers as well as enhancing our product offering to customers,” said Mr. Charlie Chu, EVP (Business). “The two loops allow us to add Xingang and Xiamen to the rotation while not comprising the transit time. In addition, it also provides for twice weekly service from Thailand to Hong Kong and Shekou with the 2 loops, which was not available to RCL before.”
