Regional Container Lines (RCL) started as a Common Feeder Operator, operating its first feeder container ship 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.

Presently, RCL owns and operates 46 container vessels covering more than 66 destinations in Asia, India, India subcontinent and the Middle East.

RCL will increasingly expand its feeder services and container liner business in Asia through the provision of providing high quality container shipping services with reliable fix day sailings, fast transit, the deployment of modern and high specification container ships and customer service information technology. RCL fleet size ranges from 200 TEUs to 7,000 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 deadline.
