The route starts in Shanghai with stops at Yantian, in south China's Guangdong province, Hong Kong, and the U.S. cities of New York, Norfolk, Virginia, Charleston, South Carolina, and Japan's Tokyo and Kobe, they said. Nine ships, each with a capacity of 3,400 teu, will reportedly be used on the route.
