Evergreen Line has announced a series of enhancements to its Asia - U.S. East Coast Service (AUE) and China - South U.S. West Coast - China Service (CPS) services. These changes were introduced to meet customer demand for higher levels of service and will come into effect from mid April.
The CPS service will now provide faster transit times from the keys ports of Shanghai to Los Angeles. From Shanghai the transit times has been reduced to 12 days.
The revised CPS port rotation is as follows:
Xingang - Qingdao - Shanghai - Ningbo - Los Angeles - Oakland - Xingang
The first CPS vessel to load in China will be the 6332TEU 'Hatsu Envoy 0331-070' sailing from Xingang on 18 April 2009.
The AUE service, which offers direct sailing between Asia and the U.S. East Coast, will now offer a transit time of just 24 days between Yantian and Savannah.
The first sailing on the revised schedule will be operated by the 4,211TEU vessel, 'Ever Diamond 0468-089E' departing from Taipei Port on 24 April 2009. The port rotation is as follows:
Taipei - Hong Kong - Yantian - Kaohsiung - Colon Container Terminal - Savannah - New York - Baltimore - Colon Container Terminal - Taipei
