Further Asia/Europe service cutbacks for CKYH

Further Asia/Europe service cutbacks for CKYH

Tokyo: CKYH Alliance members, Coscon, "K"LINE, Yang Ming and Hanjin Shipping, have announced further "rationalisations" to their Asia/Europe services from early December 2008 to end of March 2009. The cutbacks will reduce weekly CKYH capacity to North Europe by around 16,000teu or 30% of the existing capacity during this period.

On the heels of its recent suspension of its CNX service, the alliance is to combine its AES and AEN services from end of November by offering a combined service called CNEU. The new service will deploy eight vessels of 8204-9469teu with direct port calls at Dalian, Xingang, Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Hong Kong, Yantian, Nansha, Singapore, Rotterdam, Felixstowe, Hamburg, Antwerp, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Additionally, a number of sailings in both the AES2 and AES3 services will be suspended from mid December 2008, in order to cope with the slack season. However the CKYH Alliance will modify the service network of its AES1, AES2 and AES3 services, to meet the needs of its customers by maintaining the existing port coverage and service.  [20/11/08]
