UASC adds service to Asia-Europe through deals with other lines

4/29/2014 8:43:01 AM

UNITED Arab Shipping Co (UASC) is to operate five Asia-Europe services instead of four through a vessel sharing deal with China Shipping Container Lines and slot swops with the CKYHE Alliance's Hanjin Shipping and Evergreen Marine.

In so doing the carrier's Asia-North Europe service network will continue to move closer to members of the CKYHE Alliance and CSCL, reported Lloyd's List.

The new services on the tradelane are: the AEC1 that uses 10 vessels of 8,500 TEU and 9,500 TEU from April 28; the AEC3 which started on April 17 using 10 ships of 14,000 TEU; and the AEC4 that began on April 15 with ten 8,000 TEU-10,000 TEU ships.

The AEC8 and AEC9, both operated with 11 ships of between 13,000 TEU and 13,500 TEU, are existing services that UASC says has been enhanced.

The new services will offer direct coverage from south, east and north China, Taiwan, South Korea and Southeast Asia to the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France. Also, direct calls from Asia to Felixstowe and from North Europe to the Middle East.
