    Container carrier APL announced Thursday a new Japan-Malaysia-Vietnam (JMV) service that will provide weekly connectivity between North Asia and Southeast Asia.
    The service will commence sailing from Osaka June 17 with a rotation of Osaka — Kobe — Nagoya — Yokohama — Tokyo — Hong Kong — Singapore — Port Klang (N) — Port Klang (W) — Singapore ¬— Ho Chi Minh — Shekou — Kaohsiung — Osaka.
    “The JMV service will offer one of the most comprehensive North Asian market coverage comprising five Japanese main ports as well as Hong Kong, Shekou and Taiwan,” the carrier said in a statement. “Shippers from Kanto and Kansai regions will also find an alternative access to Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam via the JMV service and vice versa.”
    APL is a member of the CMA CGM Group, which said last week it is targeting to reduce costs by $1.5 billion. CMA CGM also will continue to rationalize its various brands, and APL will focus on the transpacific, Asia-Indian Subcontinent, intra-Asia (with CNC) and Asia-Oceania markets as well as continuing to operate its U.S.-flag services.

We are seeing many more pricing requests for Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Few actually moved their supply chains outside of China because this will take time, especially for larger shippers. However, Taiwan and South Korea are in a unique situation: Some manufacturing had shifted to mainland China in the last decade due to lower costs, but that infrastructure is still in Taiwan and South Korea. Some manufacturing may temporarily shift back there until Southeast Asia infrastructure catches up. 

The Port of Oakland in May handled 85,964 TEUs of loaded imports and 78,070 TEUs of loaded exports, up 4.2% and 8.4% year-over-year, respectively.
