CNC has announced the launch of North East Asia – South East Asia Service – D (NSD), a new service that connects the ports of Japan and Taiwan. CNC is a brand of APL, the sole Intra Asia short sea carrier of the CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics.
With the NSD service, CNC will expand its extensive port coverage in Japan to Yokkaichi at the center of the Japanese archipelago. While it will be characterised by its direct connectivity between Yokkaichi and Taiwan, the NSD service also promises direct shipments between the ports of Taiwan’s three most populous cities and Japan’s three largest metropolis.
The NSD service will commence sailing on 19 December from the port of Taichung with the port rotation of Taichung – Taipei – Tokyo – Yokohama – Nagoya – Yokkaichi – Taipei – Taichung – Kaohsiung.
