Singapore-based APL has announced a tie-up as a slot operator with Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) to enhance its Japan to Thailand and the Philippines coverage.

The new Japan-Thailand-Philippine (JTP) service will improve APL’s coverage of Japanese ports, particularly those of Tokyo, Yokohama, Shimizu and Nagoya, APL said in a statement.

“Introducing the weekly JTP service will strengthen APL’s Intra-Asia shortsea network and better serve key production and consumption markets in the region,” said Jason Wong, APL vice president for intra-Asia trade.

The new service provides APL customers direct access to markets in Shimizu and Nagoya. It also links Korea to the Southeast Asian markets of Thailand and the Philippines.

“JTP offers one of the industry’s best transit times between Japan and Thailand, and the Philippines to Japan,” Wong said.

Port rotation for the JTP service will be Tokyo, Yokohama, Shimizu, Nagoya, Pusan, Laem Chabang, Manila, and Tokyo. The first sailing will start from Tokyo on December 10, 2011 with the MOL Sparkle.
