Taiwan Container Ships to Serve New Routes

April 12, 2013

Evergreen Marine Corp. partnered with  French-based CMA CGM Grou, & Yang Ming Marine both offer new container services.

Evergreen's new route, called South Red Sea Service, connects Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and countries near the Red Sea, as well as provide services into landlocked African countries like Ethiopia through the East African country of Djibouti, reports Focus Taiwan.

The new Red Sea service will begin May 2 with a container ship departing from Port of Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia. The new route will be served by five 2,200 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessels -- three operated by Evergreen Marine and two by CMA CGM.

Meanwhile, Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp. announced it will expand its market presence in Myanmar [Burma] as it considers that the country's basic infrastructure projects present great potential opportunities for the container shipping industry.
