“K” Line to upgrade transpacific capacity

“K” Line to upgrade transpacific capacity

   Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd. will increase the vessel capacity on three of its weekly transpacific services, once it has received its five 5,500-TEU new containerships.

   The Asia/U.S. West Coast PNW service will add calls at Xiamen and replace the current five 4,000-TEU ships with the new 5,500-TEU vessels.

   Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd. and “K” Line’s fellow CKYH alliance partners Hanjin Shipping and Yang Ming all take slots on the PNW service, which will have a revised port rotation of: Xiamen; Hong Kong; Yantian; Shanghai; Nagoya; Tokyo; Tacoma, Wash.; Vancouver, British Columbia; Tokyo; Nagoya; Kobe; and back to Xiamen.

   The PSW-1 loop in the Asia/U.S. West Coast trade will be unified to five 5,500-TEU vessels from the current mix of 5,500-TEU and 4,000-TEU ships. Port coverage and rotation remain unchanged.

   The Asia/U.S. East Coast AWE-4 service will only use 4,000-TEU vessels rather than the current mix of eight vessels ranging from 3,500 TEUs to 4,000 TEUs. The port coverage and rotation will not be altered.

   COSCO, Hanjin and Yang Ming, as part of the CKYH alliance, all take space on the PSW-1 and AWE-4 services.
