Indochina’s Connected Logistics Through South East Asia’s Link
Yusen Logistics announced the launch of the South East Asia Link service (SEAL) – a cross border trucking service for Indochina. Why? It makes more financial and economical sense to offer a road solution as compared to air freight forwarding and quicker ocean freight forwarding.
What is SEAL?
“SEAL” is a cross border trucking service that connects Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, providing Full Truck Load service (FTL) as well as Less than Truck Load (LTL) solutions.
The service operates five times a week between Singapore and Malaysia, and runs two-three times a week connecting Malaysia with its northern neighbors Thailand (Bangkok) and Vietnam (Hanoi).
How does it help?
The “SEAL” solution helps to cut both cost and lead times and here’s an example to demonstrate why; take for example the high-demand corridor between the Thai and Vietnamese capitals where the price is approximately half the cost of air freight forwarding and at the same time 10 days quicker when compared to ocean freight movement. All vehicles in the fleet are also equipped with GPS to help ensure a well-equipped system to confirm freight status and provide quality assurance.
Yusen will then respond to the growing demand with innovative service, increased capacity on existing routes, an expanded network to Myanmar and by offering an integrated multi-modal transportation solution with air and ocean freight forwarding.
