Cosco Shipping Lines, the container shipping unit of Cosco Shipping, is launching new transpacific express services from China to Prince Rupert and Los Angeles.

The CEN-EXPRESS from Qingdao and Shanghai to Prince Rupert is a brand-new service offered by the company based on its long-term operation locally at Prince Rupert.

Deploying five 4,250 teu containerships on weekly basis, the service aims to decrease a regular sailing time by two weeks as container lines look to increase frequency to beat congestion at ports.

The CEN-PLUS service, calling at Tianjin, Qingdao, Shanghai and Los Angeles will deploy six 10,000teu containerships each week.
