Wan Hai and Hanjin link on the transpacific

Taipei: Wan Hai Lines and Hanjin Shipping will be cooperating in the Transpacific trade effective middle of March. SJX (South East Asia - Japan Express) service, launched by Hanjin Shipping last June, is a direct service between Vietnam and the US.?
According to the carriers, SJX, which is currently operated by Hanjin Shipping, will be inviting Wan Hai Lines as a co-operator with six of 4,000 TEU class vessels deployed, five by Hanjin Shipping and one by Wan Hai Lines, adding Hong Kong to the current calling ports in order to attract more cargo from South China areas as well.?
Together with this new joint service, Wan Hai Lines will enter into a cross-charter arrangement with Hanjin Shipping on PSX (Pacific Express) service.  Wan Hai, a leading intra-Asia player, has tried repeatedly to cement its place on the main east-west trades. Hanjin is one of the four largest carriers on the transpacific.  [19/01/10]
