PIL integrates inland shipping in China into intermodal expansion

Pacific International Lines (PIL) is working to integrate its inland waterway service offering in China as part of the newly launched PIL Intermodal Service.

PIL provides inland shipping services to its customers who need efficient transportation of their cargo from ports to inland China as part of its service offering in China, PIL reported.

The company expects to offer its customers good point-to-point connectivity in the country by adding the barge service, rail and truck services.

The service offers customers rail, truck and barge services in addition to PIL’s container shipping services.

The Singapore company’s barge service in China is currently available in 16 provinces including Shandong, Jiangsu, Anhui, Jiangxi, Sichuan, Chongqing, Guangdong, Fujian, covering a total of 74 major inland ports.

PIL is also working to expand its network to cover another 14 ports with rail service in China: Chongqing, Chengdu, Nanjing, Huaihua, Changzhou, Hefei, Ulaanbaatar, Zhengzhou, Xi’an, Yiwu, Xiaoshan, Shaoxing, Lishui and Nanchang.

In addition to China, PIL’s intermodal service is available in Africa, Australia, Cambodia, India & Bangladesh, Korea, Latin America, Malaysia, the Middle East, New Zealand, Thailand and Vietnam.

In January 2023, PIL partnered with i4 Insight, Lloyd’s Register’s fleet optimization experts, to reduce emissions and maximize fleet performance.

Recently, PIL, KPI OceanConnect and Bunker One announced the completion of their first live electronic marine fuel inventory for overseas delivery via the Singapore Trade Data Exchange (SGTraDex).
