NWA lines add Laem Chabang to PSX loop
New World Alliance members said Thursday they will add a stop at Thailand’s biggest port to their PSX transpacific service.
The NWA will also add a ship to the loop to provide the direct service from Laem Chabang. The new rotation for the PSX is Laem Chabang, Cai Mep, Hong Kong, Yantian, Los Angeles, Oakland, Tokyo, Xiamen, Hong Kong, Da Chan Bay and Laem Chabang.
According to American Shipper affiliate ComPair Data, the service is operated with six vessels, all provided by MOL, with an average size of 5,898 TEUs.

The PS-1 calls at Seattle and Vancouver.
