Pacific International Lines (PIL) has decided to withdraw its services from the trans-Pacific market, as part of its efforts to optimise network efficiency.
As a result of this service re-alignment, the carrier’s last trans-Pacific sailing will be in March 2020.
Henceforth, PIL will focus on further strengthening its position in the North-South Trade such as Africa, Middle East / Red Sea, India Sub-Continent, Latin America, and Oceania.
The shipping line owns and operates a fleet of around 150 containerships, bulkers and multi-purpose vessels, serving more than 500 locations in over 90 countries worldwide.
As of the latest data from Alphaliner, PIL is the ninth largest container carrier in the world, with a market share of 1.7%.
