Chinese and Taiwanese carriers partner on major trades

Evergreen Line and China Shipping Container Lines will co-operate on Asia-Europe, Asia-Mexico-US east coast and Asia-US west coast services from the middle of June. The lines explained the partnership in a joint statement: “With the benefits of slot-sharing arrangements and joint services, we expect both Evergreen and China Shipping to see significantly upgraded service coverage and more efficiently utilised capacity on the crucial Asia-Europe and Asia-America trades as a result, so providing a better service to our customers.” The carriers will deploy a total of eight 8,000teu vessels on the China-north Europe service (service code: CEM for Evergreen and AEX1 for CSCL).
