The new service will start sailing from Yokohama, Japan, on May 21.

“The new CA3 service will be characterised by its strategic connections across North and Central China, Japan and Korea to the largest cities of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in eastern Australia,” Chan Khai Tou, APL Head of Intra-Asia Short Sea and Oceania Services, said.

The CA3 service will call the ports of Yokohama, Osaka, Busan, Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
