WAN HAI ENDS PACIFIC SLOT-CHARTER WITH MAERSK SEALAND
Wan Hai Lines, the Taiwanese intra-Asia and transpacific carrier, has stopped taking slots on the “TP5” and “TP6” Asia/U.S. West Coast services of Maersk Sealand.
The slot-charter agreement expired at the end of April, an executive of Wan Hai told Shippers’ NewsWire.
Wan Hai has recently increased the capacity of its own “China Trans-Pacific Service.” In February, it introduced three vessels of 2,250 to 2,550 TEUs in its Asia/U.S. West Coast service, replacing smaller ships of 1,660-TEU capacity.
