Evergreen Line has announced that it has formed an alliance with China Shipping and CMA CGM to launch an upgraded Asia-Europe service (AEX7).
According to the Taiwan-based shipper, the new cooperation commenced at the end of June, and is designed to provide greater frequency and meet requirements and expectations of customers in the service.
"This is the first time the three carriers have combined their efforts to integrate the Asia-Europe AEX7 service," the group said in a statement. "It is expected that by fully utilising the current containerships and through flexible strategy three carriers together will deploy a total of nine vessels of 8,000-9,250 TEU capacity."
The service will operate with six CSCL vessels, two from Evergreen and one from CMA CGM, and will have a port rotation of Shanghai, Ningbo, Shekou, Hong Kong, Yantian, Port Kelang, Le Havre, Rotterdam, Hamburg, Zeebrugge, Port Kelang and Shanghai.
