Evergreen-Hanjin lowers capacity on joint China-Europe service
Evergreen Line and Hanjin Shipping have announced adjusted container carrier capacity on their joint China-Europe-Mediterranean and China-UK Express service, effective the fourth quarter of 2012.
From October to December, the joint CEM/CUS service will forego three sailings, according to a statement from Evergreen Line. The first skipped voyage will be in week 41 and the other two are scheduled for week 44 and week 49.
The adjustment reduces the service's quarterly capacity by 23 percent, the company said. Evergreen and Hanjin may consider further capacity reductions to adjust to changing markets.
The CEM (China-Europe-Mediterranean) Service has been one of Evergreen Line's main liner services in the Far East - Europe trade since 1999. Hanjin Shipping joined the service and named it the CUS (China-UK Express) Service in August 2012.
