Shipping and logistics provider, OOCL will launch Reefer LCL Plus in mid-August, a service for transporting less than container load (LCL) quantities of frozen cargo to Hong Kong and Tokyo.
For many years exporters and importers of frozen cargo between Australia and Asia have not had a regular, scheduled sea-freight service for LCL quantities and have had to opt for more expensive options such as airfreight or freight full-sea freight container loads.
OOCL said the Reefer LCL is a new opportunity for exporters and importers of small loads of frozen cargo to ship them on a regular basis at economical costs, meeting the needs of a growing frozen cargo market with Hong Kong and Japan.
“Operating through our accredited and approved cold stores in Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Tokyo, our customers are assured of a first class professional service”, OOCL Australia’s national sales manager Tim Mason said.
“Customers can be confident that their cargo is in good care as OOCL will be managing their shipments from time of receipt to the time of delivery”, he said.
Weekly services will be available from both Melbourne and Sydney on an alternating basis.
Interested customers can access this service by phoning OOCL customer service on 1300 662573.
