Each alliance will contribute ships with capacity of approximately 3,500 TEU per vessel to a weekly service that will operate on a 56-day rotation. In Asia, the ports of Shanghai, Chiwan, Shekou, and Hong Kong will be served, while Norfolk and Savannah will be called in the U.S. The Panamanian port of Manzanillo will be served on the eastbound leg.
