CNC Further Enhances Connectivity to Japan

CNC is pleased to announce the launch of a new IA88 service in tandem with the revamp of its existing IA2 service. CNC is the Intra-Asia short sea specialist of the CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics.

A weekly direct service connecting the ports of Japan to Vietnam, IA88 is primed to facilitate Ho Chi Minh-bound shipments from Osaka, Kobe, Yokohama and Nagoya. Meanwhile, IA88 will also double-up as an alternative shipping choice with a fast transit time for customers with cargoes from Xiamen, China to Japan.

The revamped IA2 promises an express delivery from Laem Chabang to the Japanese ports in the Kanto region, further expediting Thai exports. IA2 shipments that are bound for markets afar, too can be relayed through the trans-shipment hub of Hong Kong, tapping on the extensive intra-regional network of CNC and comprehensive global network of the CMA CGM Group.

IA88 will commence its maiden voyage on 27 February from Osaka with the following rotation: Xiamen – Osaka – Kobe – Yokohama – Nagoya – Ho Chi Minh

IA2 will embark on its new route on 16 February from Laem Chabang with the following rotation: Laem Chabang – Hong Kong – Tokyo – Yokohama – Nagoya – Kobe
