Yang Ming starts Shanghai/Tacoma loop
Yang Ming Marine is starting a weekly transpacific loop calling at Tacoma and Shanghai later this week.
The vessel “YM Hawk” will make the maiden voyage on the “PN3” service when it departs from Shanghai this Friday (June 3).
The “PN3” service will use four ships of about 1,500 TEUs, adding about 75,000 TEUs in annual one-way capacity to the transpacific trade. The full port rotation will be Shanghai; Tacoma, Wash.; Vancouver, B.C.; and back to Shanghai.
COSCO and Hanjin Shipping will both take space on the service.
