Port of Seattle added to MOL's PSX service to Asia
Mitsui OSK Lines and the New World Alliance recently announced the implementation of a new service at the Port of Seattle designed to expedite exports to Asia, according to a port news release.
"We appreciate MOL's business, as their containers mean more jobs for our region," said Linda Styrk, managing seaport director at the Port of Seattle.
Starting May 21, Seattle's APL Terminal 5 will be added to MOL's PSX service, providing expanded capacity and quicker transport times for Northwest cargo bound for Asian ports. The MOL ships, which have an average carrying capacity of 6,300 TEUs, will also add new stops at Vancouver, BC, Tokyo and Yantian.
This will be the first time MOL ships have called at Seattle since 2008.
