Evergreen Upgrades Asia-Australia Network

Taiwanese container carrier Evergreen Line has teamed up with its compatriot Yang Ming Marine Transport (YML), China’s Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL), Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. 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.

The first sailing is planned to depart from Yokohama on October 23.

The new, weekly, NEAX service will have the following port rotation: Yokohama, Osaka (Japan), Pusan (South Korea), Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo (China), Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane (Australia), then returning to Yokohama.
