Wednesday, January 08, 2014

MOL Liner Ltd. (MOL) announced an enhancement of its Intra-Asia service network with new rotation of “HS3” and new Japan-Strait service “HS4,” offering competitive service despite potential schedule disruption as a result of recent port congestion in the region.

Renewal of “HS3” with New Feeder Service “AJS” 

MOL will introduce Singapore-Jakarta feeder service (AJS is operated by MOL) to stabilize the service schedule of “HS3”. This will help maintain competitive transit times from Japan to Jakarta by transshipment to this dedicated feeder service and reduce the risk of accumulated delays at ports.

Furthermore, the new “HS3” will add a direct call at Shekou on the northbound rotation to cover service needs from/to the port of Shekou.

New Service “HS4”

MOL will offer a new service “HS4” to link Japan-Taiwan-Hong Kong-Jakarta. HS4 is operated by Orient Overseas Container Line as their named “KTX3”, and MOL will have space on this service. 

The “HS4” route will enhance MOL's own network to offer a wide variety of both inbound and outbound services. Significantly, HS4 will offer the direct link between Nagoya/Kobe/Keelung and Jakarta, and from Jakarta to Tokyo/Nagoya. It will also enhance the new MOL direct network i.e. from/to Keelung and from/to Shekou.
