WAN HAI TO BRING LARGER SHIPS INTO U.S./ASIA SERVICE
Wan Hai Lines Ltd. said it will expand its U.S./Asia service by replacing five 1,600-TEU vessels with five larger vessels of up to 3,500 TEUs.
The carrier said it would also 'acquire additional equipment and expand customer service and sales forces to support the increased vessel capacity and modify, as necessary, its current transpacific service route for wider Asian port coverage.'
The service will continue to call at U.S. ports once a week with the added capacity. The service calls Oakland and Los Angeles.
