Taipei: Evergreen Line has announced that it will be adjusting its weekly transit times on its Far East - Panama service (FPS), to improve the service it offers to its customers in Central America, the Caribbean and the West Coast of South America.

The company has cut the transit time from its Taiwanese hub, Kaohsiung to the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas from 23 to just 16 days, while the transit time from Shanghai to the Caribbean hub, Colon Container Terminal, is now just 25 days.

The FPS service port rotation is now: Ningbao - Shanghai - Yangtian - Kaohsiung - Lazaro Cardenas - Colon Container Terminal - Ningbao

The first sailing operating to the revised schedule will be operated by the 2,824TEU  'Irenes Remedy 0046-036', which is due to start loading in Shanghai on 16 April 2009.

A company's spokesperson stated: "Evergreen is pleased that, even in today's challenging and competitive market in Latin American and the Caribbean, we are able to find ways of developing our services and focus on our customers needs".  [06/04/09]
