Evergreen Line will join Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) in a slot-charter agreement linking Asia to Southeast Africa.
The weekly service, called MZX (Mozambique Zuid Africa Express Service), is departing on 11 August, 2011 from Tanjung Pelepas. MZX service is operated by five ships in the 35-day transit route. The port routation is: Tanjung Pelepas–Singapore–Port Louis–Durban–Maputo–Tanjung Pelepas. MZX also enhances the shipping network around the Indian Ocean islands by extending service to the market of Southeast African landlocked countries.
Meanwhile in order to continuously provide an improved network to customers, Evergreen Line in late July launched a new Kaohsiung-Cebu feeder Service (KCS Service). Evergreen Line will deploy one 950-TEU ship with a rotation: Kaohsiung – Cebu – Kaohsiung.
The first weekly Intra-Asia voyage by Uni-Chart departed from Kaohsiung on 26 July. “With more stable capacity and shorter delivery time we believe that with this new KCS service, and Evergreen Line’s online Taiwan-Manila service (TMN), customers will benefit from more convenient sailings among Southeast Asia destinations,” Evergreen Line said.
