Evergreen Expands Asia-South Africa Network
To offer a more comprehensive service on the Asia-South Africa trade, Evergreen Line will adjust its existing joint service with COSCO as well as contribute vessels to the service currently operated by K Line, MOL and PIL. Both moves will take effect in October.
Evergreen will deploy two 4,200 TEU vessels on both the FAX service operated by COSCO and Evergreen as well as the ASA service, becoming joint service partners with K Line, MOL and PIL. The port rotations, vessel sizes and effective dates of the adjustments are as follows:
FAX route: Effective as of the Shanghai sailing on October 15
Rotation: Shanghai - Ningbo - Keelung - Singapore - Durban - Singapore - Shanghai
Fleet: Six 4,200 - 5,800 TEU vessels
ASA route: Effective as of the Kaohsiung sailing on October 9
Rotation: Kaohsiung - Xiamen - Hong Kong - Shekou - Singapore - Port Klang - Durban - Cape Town - Port Klang - Singapore - Kaohsiung
Fleet: Seven 4,200 - 5,800 TEU vessels
This development of strategic cooperation with Evergreen's service partners will increase the line's frequency of sailings on the Asia-South Africa trade from weekly to twice weekly and add Keelung, Xiamen and Port Klang to its service network.
