“This service also connects customers with a gateway to Singapore for the Southeast Asia market, as well as Bangladesh, the East Coast of India and Myanmar.

“The launch of this service demonstrates PIL’s continued commitment to be a first mover to meet the needs of the market by providing customised solutions for our customers.”
