MCC Transport launches direct China-Burma logistic service

Intra-Asia carrier MCC Transport, the sister company of prominent shipping firm Maersk Group, has launched direct logistic services between Burma and China. The new IA5 service will reduce transit time from China to Rangoon ports, which previously took 18 days, to just 13 days, eliminating cargo transshipment. The first of eight 1,100 TEU vessels left Shanghai on 27 January and is due in Rangoon on 9 February.
