Regional Container Lines (RCL) and Mariana Express Lines are partnering in a new Thailand – South China service.

The new service will be launched on 5 June calling Bangkok – Laem Chabang – Nansha – Shekou – Laem Chabang.

Mariana Express Lines will deploy two 1,200 teu vessels on the service, with one of these being replaced by RCL’s Ratana Thida by July 2021. RCL will brand the service as RBS.

“The new RBS will complement the RBH service today by offering our customers in Thailand and South China alike the convenience of twice weekly sailings.  The calls in Nansha and Shekou on the new RBS are on the weekend, complementing the RBH calls at Nansha and Shekou over Thursday and Friday,” said and RCL spokesperson.

“In addition, RBS will also call at PAT (Port Authority of Thailand) vs Thai Sugar terminal in Bangkok.  Customers can choose a terminal of their preference.  Customers will also enjoy fast transits in both directions, for example with a five day transit time between Laem Chabang and Nansha which ranks amongst the industry’s best for time sensitive cargoes.”
