Maersk Line to Launch New Asia-USWC Service

Danish shipping company Maersk Line plans to set up a new service between Asia and the United States West Coast, the TP1 service, effective September 15, 2016. 

As part of the service, six vessels with a capacity of 4,000 TEU would be deployed per week.

The TP1 service will be part of the 2M alliance’s network of services.

The TP1 Eastbound service will cover Yantian, Shanghai (China), Busan (South Korea), Los Angeles/Long Beach (US), while the port rotation of the TP1 Westbound service will be Los Angeles/Long Beach, Yantian, Shanghai, Busan.

“We are responding to increased demand in the Transpacific. With supply chains disrupted, many customers are approaching us for transport solutions for their cargo. The TP1 service is a stable, long term solution to meet our customers’ needs,” Klaus Rud Sejling, Head of Maersk Line’s East-West Network, said.
