Evergreen Marine Corp., the largest container shipper in Taiwan, has announced that it will work with two Chinese counterparts to launch shipping services between China and Indonesia later this month.
Evergreen Marine said it will provide the new weekly service jointly with China's COSCO Group and China Shipping Container Lines Co., starting May 20, to take advantage of booming trade activity in the region.
The three partners will assign four 2,000-2,700 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessels to serve the new route. TEUs are used to measure the capacity of container vessels.
The four vessels will take turns serving the route. Each of the four will start from China's northern port of Qingdao, and sail to Shanghai, Xiamen and Shekou in China, Pasir Gudang in Malaysia, Singapore, and Surabaya in Indonesia before returning to Qingdao via Singapore. Each journey will take 28 days.
