PACIFIC International Lines is adding a call at the new Busan Container Terminal in South Korea on two of its services.
Starting this month, PIL’s South West Africa Container Services (SWS) and the West Coast South America 6 (WS6) services are calling at the terminal.
PIL general manager, operations and procurement Abhishek Chawla said adding Busan to PIL’s network provides an expanded coverage to Africa, Latin America, Red Sea/Middle East and the Oceania markets.
“In doing so, PIL is partnering with the newly launched terminal BCT in Korea, which, with its newer handling equipment and expanded capacity, gives us the confidence of faster vessel turnarounds, thereby enabling us to offer quality services to our Korean Importers and Exporters,” he said.
“We are pleased to work with BCT and look forward to a fruitful and long-term partnership with them.”
SWS commenced calling at BCT with PIL vessel Kota Selamat on 6 July, while the first PIL vessel call to BCT to be made on WS6 service will be by Kota Lestari on 26 July.
