UASC

 

UASC has introduced its new Asia – Europe Network with three new services (AEC1, AEC3, AEC4), and two enhanced services (AEC8, AEC9). These services will broaden UASC’s market coverage providing direct services to additional Asian and North European ports whereby UASC will provide more efficient and high quality services to its existing and new customers.

 
This new setup is developed through a Vessel Sharing Agreement with China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) and slot exchange arrangements with Hanjin Shipping and Evergreen Marine Corp. 
 
The port rotations are as follows: AEC1 (New service, vessels deployed: 10 x 8,500 – 9,500) starting 28th April, 2014 (First effective vessel and voyage: Xin Los Angeles - 0103W) : Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Yantian, Port Kelang, Felixstowe, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Zeebrugge, Port Kelang, Nansha, Qingdao

This new network is a part of our continual commitment to better serve our customers in Asia and Europe alike by providing competitive transit times between ports in Asia and North Europe. The new products offer:  Direct coverage from South, East and North China, Taiwan, South Korea and South East Asia to the United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France. Direct calls from the Far East to Felixstowe and from North Europe to Middle East open new business opportunities for our customers. Market leading transit times for major port pairs in the Far East and North Europe will allow our customers to keep abreast of their competitors with reduced  inventory costs thereby improving their bottom-line. 
 
Attractive weekend cut-offs from major ports in the Far East will allow our customers to ship their finished products at the end of the week with smooth customs processes. Early weekday arrivals in North Europe will allow our customers to pick up their cargo as desired. UASC looks forward to rolling out the new Asia – North Europe Network, which enhances efficiencies in the deployment of our vessels, whereby we can provide competitive transit times, a wider direct port coverage as well as flexible customized services to meet the requirements of our valued customers.
