In addition the line intends to further strengthen its Trans-Pacific service network via slot exchange arrangements with strategic partners.
Employing five vessels of 4,000 teu, Evergreen Line will start its own China–Pacific South West (CPS2) service with an inaugural sailing from Ningbo; the port rotation will then follow as Shanghai, Los Angeles, Oakland and Ningbo.
Furthermore, the line will utilise the new CPS2 and its existing HTW services to provide capacity for a slot exchange arrangement with COSCO’s CEN, and Hanjin’s CAX and PSX services.
The rotations of these loops are as follows:
- HTW (Evergreen): Taipei, Xiamen, Hong Kong, Yantian, Los Angeles, Oakland, Taipei
- CEN (COSCO): Dalian, Xingang, Qingdao, Long Beach, Oakland, Dalian
- CAX (Hanjin):Shanghai, Kwangyang, Busan, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle, Tokyo, Osaka, Busan, Shanghai
- PSX (Hanjin): Kaohsiung, Yantian, Shekou, Shanghai, Busan, Long Beach, Oakland, Busan, Kwangyang, Kaohsiung
