PACIFIC Eagle Lines (PEL), Regional Container Lines (RCL) and Singha Shipping - a wholly owned subsidiary of Neptune Orient Lines - will jointly provide fixed-day container liner services between Singapore and the Philippines.

The inaugural voyage of this new joint service was last Saturday, with the sailing of the Dragon Sumatra.

This move follows the increasing Philippine trade volume and the demand of the trade for increased frequency.

A total of four vessels will be deployed with RCL contributing two vessels, and PEL and Singha Shipping each one vessel.

The new joint service is a further enhancement of the fixed-day service previously operated by PEL and RCL.

The four vessels provide the trade with two fixed day sailings between Singapore and Manila north harbour including a weekly call at south harbour, a weekly Cebu sailing and a fortnightly call at Zamboanga and General Santos.

The new service will replace NOL's existing service between Hong Kong and the Philippines.
