Regional Container Lines (RCL) is launching a new service linking Belawan, Indonesia with Penang, Malaysia.

The service called RCL Malaysia Singapore 9 (RMS9) will call Singapore (Tuesday) – Belawan (Thursday), Penang (Friday), Port Klang (Sunday) before returning to Singapore. It adds to RCL’s existing RCL Malaysia Singapore (RMS) and RCL Thailand Belawan (RTB) services.

“This second sailing is a response from RCL to our main line customers (MLO) in providing a second sailing ex Penang preferably on an end week position for their mother vessel connections in both Port Klang and Singapore,” said Charlie Chu, evp business for RCL.

The first voyage starts from Singapore on 3 October with the vessel Nawata Bhum
