CKYH Alliance alters rotation on China/Europe link
CKYH Alliance members COSCO, “K” Line, Hanjin Shipping and Yang Ming along with Senator Lines are switching ports on their joint weekly Asia/Europe “China Europe Express” service from the start of April.
New calls at Shanghai, Xiamen and Chiwan replace dropped calls at Colombo, Port Kelang, Yantian, Hong Kong and Qingdao. Hamburg is also switching with Rotterdam as the first port of call in north Europe.
The vessel “Hanjin Rome” starts the revised port rotation when it departs Hamburg Friday. The “CEX” service uses eight ships of about 5,500 TEUs and will call Hamburg, Rotterdam, Felixstowe, Singapore, Shanghai, Xingang, Busan, Xiamen, Chiwan, Singapore and back to Hamburg.
