Far East-East Coast South America service bumps up to 9,000-TEUers

5/9/2013 9:39:35 AM

Evergreen and Cosco have begun to replace their eleven 3,400-TEU to 4,200-TEU ships with the first vessel replacement of two in the 8,000-9,000-TEU range to join the Far East-East Coast South America service (ESA) together with the 8,063-TEU OOCL Qingdao.

The one of two ships has been chartered from OOCL in exchange for vessels chartered by OOCL from Cosco for the Far East-Middle East trade.

Other vessels to follow are two from Zim, which joins the service with the 8,440-TEU Zim Ningbo and the Zim San Diego, reports Alphaliner. Evergreen will provide five vessels including the 8,073-TEU Ital Contessa, the 8,827-TEU Valor, the 8,073-TEU LT Cortesia, the 8,827-TEU Value and the 8,827-TEU Valiant. Cosco will provide the 8,063-TEU OOCL Ningbo.

Two other carriers to employ this class of vessels are Maersk Line and Hamburg Sud on the Far East-East Coast South America route (ASAS 1/NGX).

MSC launched its Ipanema service in April which adds about 9,000 TEU every week on the Far East-South America East Coast.
