Evergreen realigns US West Coast, Asia and Med trades

Taipei: Container giant Evergreen Line is to reintroduce a 20-port pendulum service that will enhance coverage of the US West Coast-Asia-Mediterranean trade routes. The service will range from Tacoma to Valencia, Spain, via the Far East, Middle East and Suez Canal.

'This customer-centric move focuses on the market-oriented adjustment of Evergreen Line's existing global service network,' said a company spokesperson.  'Cargo can be easily connected into Evergreen's global liner network to help customers deliver better and quicker results.'

The US West Coast - Asia - Mediterranean (UAM) service, starting on May 10 from Kaohsiung, will replace current Asia-Pacific-North West Coast (PNM) and Far-East Mediterranean (FEM) services, which were introduced last October as an interim measure.

The UAM service will operate with a total of 14 U-type (5,364teu) vessels.  The first vessel to depart will be 'Ever Unison 0132-104e' from Kaohsiung on May 10, 2010. The first sailing from the Port of Tacoma will be May 23. 

The port rotation is as follows:
Tacoma - Vancouver - Tokyo - Osaka - Qingdao - Shanghai - Ningbo - Kaohsiung - Hong Kong - Yantian - Tanjung Pelepas - Colombo - Ashdod - Alexandria - Taranto - Genoa - Barcelona - Valencia - Taranto - Colombo - Tanjung Pelepas - Kaohsiung - Hong Kong - Yantian - Shanghai - Ningbo - Tacoma.  [08/04/10]
