In preparation for the coming peak season, Evergreen Line is implementing service enhancements for the Red Sea market.
The carrier will adjust the port rotation of its Far East – Red Service (FRS) and launch a new feeder loop.
In addition, the line intends to further strengthen its Red Sea service network via slot exchange arrangements with a strategic partner.
The eighth ship has been deployed on the FRS service to add a new call at Aden. The adjustment enables a direct service from Central China, Southern China and Southeast Asia to Yemen.
Employing one vessel of 1,500 TEU, Evergreen Line will also launch a weekly Intra Red Sea feeder service (IRS) in early May. Furthermore, the line will utilize this new IRS loop for a slot exchange arrangement with X-Press, adding a service to Hodeidah, Yemen and Djibouti in East Africa via transhipment in Jeddah.
