CKYH adds larger ships on Asia-USEC service
CKYH Alliance carriers COSCO, 'K' Line, Yang Ming and Hanjin Shipping will in the coming months increase capacity by nearly 20 percent on its transpacific all-water AWE-2 service, according to American Shipper affiliate ComPair Data.
Capacity will be added through the introduction of larger vessels on the service, with seven of the nine ships operated on the loop to be switched out through July.
The nine current vessels are supplied by COSCO Container Lines and have an average capacity of 4,294 TEUs, according to ComPair Data. Seven of those ships will eventually be replaced by seven other COSCO vessels with an average capacity of about 5,089 TEUs.
The length and rotation of the service will remain unchanged. Rotation is Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Yokohama, Lazaro Cardenas, Cristobal, Savanna, New York, Boston, Qingdao and Shanghai.
