COSCO, Hanjin stop Vancouver, Yokohama calls on Pacific service
COSCO Container Lines and Hanjin Shipping are the latest carriers to reduce the number of port calls on some of their Asia/West Coast of North America services since port congestion worsened in Los Angeles and Long Beach.
The two Asian carriers’ “SEA” service, which had called at Long Beach and Vancouver, British Columbia, has stopped calling at Vancouver and Yokohama.
The service has a revised rotation of Ningbo, Xiamen, Hong Kong, Yantian, Long Beach and back to Ningbo.
The revised transit times of the service are posted on ComPair Data, the liner shipping database at www.compairdata.com.
According to industry sources, many transpacific services are running three days behind their scheduled rotations because of time lost in Southern Californian ports.
