On May 11, the Danish container shipping company Maersk Line launched a new express service, with the code TP6, that will transport containers directly from the SP-PSA international terminal in Vung Tau in southern Vietnam to Los Angeles on the West coast of the USA.
The Maersk Line’s Asian-Pacific Managing Director Jesper Praestensgaard said that the new route was the 7 th of its kind across the Pacific Ocean in the Maersk Line’s trans-global network.
The service will take 21 days from the container depot in Ho Chi Minh City before arriving in Los Angeles . Goods from Cambodia will also be transported to the SP-PSA port to access the new service. The shipping time from Phnom Penh to Los Angeles will take 22 days, the shortest at present.
The return route will transit in Hong Kong , said the Maersk Line official.
Maersk Line has over 470 container ships and it is the largest fleet to Vietnam .
It transports garments and textiles, footwear, coffee, seafood, electronics, ceramics and soft furnishings.
