Regional Container Lines (RCL) is a Thailand-based company engaged in international container vessel operations.
The company started as a Common Feeder Operator, operating its first feeder containership in 1979 between Bangkok and Singapore. In 1988, RCL was listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand, and has since achieved satisfactory performance and financial returns to shareholders.
As of October 2010, RCL owns and operates 40 container vessels with total capacity of over 50,000 TEUs, covering more than 70 destinations in Asia, Australasia and the Middle East. RCL will increasingly expand its feeder services and container liner business in Asia through the provision of high quality containership services with reliable fix day sailings, fast transit, the deployment of modern and high specification containerships and customer service information technology.
RCL fleet size ranges from 500 TEUs to 2600 TEUs. Strict manning and maintenance standards for the entire RCL fleet are provided by experienced technical team in RCL Shipmanagement, a subsidiary of RCL. The ship management company and the entire RCL owned fleet have achieved ISM certification since 1998, well ahead of the mandatory 2002 ISM dateline.
