In a further expansion of its intra-Asia regional network, Evergreen Line is set to launch a weekly Japan-Taiwan-South China Sea (JTS) service from 14 March.

Three container ships of 900-TEU will be deployed in the service with the following port rotation:

Tokyo - Yokohama - Nagoya - Osaka - Keelung - Kaohsiung - Shekou - Hong Kong - Hai Phong - Zhangjiang - Hong Kong - Shekou – Tokyo.

Evergreen Line is confident that the JTS service will play a significant role in developing intra-Asia business with the addition of a new calling port in Zhangjiang (Kwangchouwan) and an increase in its current Hai Phong frequency from two to three per week.

Together with Evergreen Line’s existing NSC (North East Asia-South East Asia-C) service from Hong Kong/Shekou to Japan, the JTS service will enhance a doubling of frequency between Japan and China.
