CNC, CMA CGM’s intra-Asian short-sea specialist, and the Kochi Prefecture Government’s Department of Public Works have introduced the Nine Provinces Feeder (NPF) service at the Port of Kochi in Japan.
The feeder service connects Kochi and Busan in three days. Export containers from Japan will be delivered from Busan to locations across Asia via CNC’s service network and globally via CMA CGM’s shipping services.
The weekly NPF connects the Ports of Japan and Korea with a service rotation of:
Busan – Hakata – Shibushi – Hososhima – Kochi – Oita – Moji – Hakata – Busan
Hideki Uchida, President of CMA CGM Japan, said: “CNC’s NPF service will be synonymous with efficiency, fast transit time and access to market connectivity which are highly valued by our customers in Kochi.”
Seiji Hamada, Governor of Kochi Prefecture stated: “We are thrilled that CNC has launched NPF as a regular service to the Kochi Prefecture.
“The new shipping service will connect Kochi to Korea where we will also gain access in Asia and to Europe, the United States, Oceania, and other locations around the world via the global shipping network of the CMA CGM Group.”
