The Containership Company expands no-frills services to Qingdao

Qingdao: The Containership Company (TCC) has decided to expand current services to Qingdao. The Great Dragon service will now call Qingdao in addition to Ningbo and Taicang, and then cross the Pacific Ocean to Los Angeles.
Chief Operating Officer Franck Kayser stated: "Our customers have repeatedly encouraged us to expand our service portfolio, as they see TCC's services as a good supplement to the more established service providers in the market. Right now, the greatest demand from our customers is a push to get a good TCC product from Qingdao. With a fast 14 day transit time, combined with a schedule reliability of 96%, we are now able to provide such a service."  
The first sailing from Qingdao is scheduled to take place 15 November with the 2,900TEU vessel Shenzhen Dragon. This service will have a scheduled transit time of 14 days to Los Angeles and provide customers with a no-frills, reliable, port to port service. The first westbound sailing from Los Angeles to Qingdao will take place on 25 October.   [22/10/10]
