Hanjin debuts second Bohai feeder service

Hanjin debuts second Bohai feeder service

Seoul: Hanjin Shipping will launch a dedicated feeder service between Korea and China from June 15.

This new feeder service, called KTD (Korea Tianjin-Dalian Service), will deploy Hanjin Shipping's one vessel of 430 TEUs, calling at Busan, Gwangyang, Xianggang, Dalian, and Busan once a week.

Hanjin Shipping expects that this dedicated feeder service, added to the existing Korea-China dedicated feeder service KTS (Korea Tianjin Service), will strengthen transshipment service from Northern China to the Americas and save logistics costs.

In particular, the launch of this dedicated feeder service is expected to address the shortage of space, during the peak season, departing from Northern China such as Dalian and Xianggang, where the container shipments are gradually increasing.

Hanjin Shipping started dedicated feeder services in the Arabian Sea, the Persian Gulf and Singapore, Thailand and Bangladesh in 2004, 2005 and 2006 respectively. [29/05/07]
