The first containerized service to Cambodia by a Malaysian shipping company was

officially established on July 4 with the arrival in Sihanoukville of Nepline Bhd's

chartered vessel Dragon Bali, according to a recent report in The Edge, a Kuala Lumpur-based

weekly business magazine.

The Dragon Bali will be making four round trips a month on the new Singapore-Sihanoukville-Kuantan-Singapore

shipping link-up.

Nepline Executive Chairman and CEO Dr. Nik Mohd Sain Omar told The Edge that in order

for the line to be profitable the Dragon Bali would need to handle more than 200

TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units) a month. Nik believes this is achievable given

that Malaysian companies generated more than 1,600 TEUs of business a month last

year.
