Lines (MOL) and Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) to launch a new joint service on Asia-Australia trade, the North East Asia – Australia Express (NEAX) service. 

Six containerships, each featuring a capacity of between 3,500 and 3,700 TEUs, will be deployed on the route, with Evergreen, MOL, K LINE and YML each providing one and OOCL the remaining two ships.
