PIL Launches Inaugural TPS Service to the Philippines


Pacific International Lines (PIL), Singapore’s leading shipping line, launched the new Thailand-Philippines Straits (TPS) direct weekly service. The new service will connect the main ports in Thailand, the Philippines, and Singapore. The inaugural sailing in Thailand began from TCT Port in Bangkok and ESCO Terminal B3 at Laem Chabang Port on February 17th, after the ship arrived from Manila (South) in the Philippines.

The launch of this new TPS service aims to ease the congestion of cargo exported to Manila (North) and provide additional options for customers. The service will be operated with two 750 TEU / 10,500-ton containerships as a collaboration between PIL and Iris Lines.

The TPS ports of call for customers in Thailand are Bangkok Port (TCT), Laem Chabang (Esco B3), Manila (South), Singapore, and Bangkok (TCT). Mr Surendran Mathilagath, General Manager, Intra-Asia Services, PIL, said, “Introducing this new service is part of our ongoing drive to enhance our coverage in Asia. It also marks our dedication to strengthening our linkages with Asia’s numerous ports. By adding this new TPS service, we provide a strong connection among the key Southeast Asian countries of the Philippines, Thailand, and Singapore. This would significantly raise our competitiveness in Asia, enabling us to offer competitive solutions and transit times within Southeast Asia and the rest of our global network. This aligns with PIL’s commitment to delivering connectivity and value to our customers worldwide.”
