MOL launches barge service from Cambodia

MOL (America) has launched a new barge service between Phnom Penh and North America.

The new service will employ Phnom Penh’s river barge terminal. Containers will be shipped via barge to Ho Chi Minh’s deepwater terminal and loaded on MOL’s line-haul vessels for direct service to North America and intra-Asia. The barge service will save MOL up to ten days of transit time to the US west coast and Canada. Customarily, containers from Phnom Penh are trucked to Sihanoukville in southern Cambodia where they are transferred to feeder vessels, shipped to Singapore and transshipped to line-haul vessels bound for North America. This new direct barge service to Ho Chi Minh will reduce intermodal travel, while completely eliminating the need for feeder services and transshipping in Singapore.
