Evergreen, Samudera and Yangming (UK) Upgrade CSI Service

Friday, March 31, 2006
Evergreen Marine Corporation, Samudera Shipping Line (SSL) and Yangming (UK) (YM (UK)), strengthened their links between China and India with the upgrading of their China – Straits – India (CSI) service. By replacing the existing ships on this service, each with an effective capacity of approximately 1,000 TEU, with larger ships of around 1,200 TEU, the three lines are providing more choice for customers between China and India. Also, YM (UK) is stepping in to replace Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), which previously partnered Evergreen and SSL in operating this service. SSL provides three of the five ships for the CSI service with Evergreen and YM(UK) each contributing one ship. Other changes to the service include dropping Bangkok and adding Ningbo and Colombo, where feeder connections are available to a number of smaller Indian ports. The revised service will commence with the sailing of MV Uni-Patriot from Shanghai on 4 April. The port rotation is as follows: Shanghai – Ningbo - Hong Kong – Singapore – Colombo – Mumbai (Nhava Sheva) – Singapore – Johore – Laem Chabang – Hong Kong – Shanghai.
