Evergreen Line will team up with Hanjin and Simatech to launch the new IDEA service linking the Indian sub-continent, Persian Gulf and East Africa by late March 2013.

Four 2,500 to 2,800 TEU vessels will be deployed on the joint service. The first sailing is planned from Mundra, Northwest India on 26 March 2013.

The Port rotation of the weekly service will be: Mundra, Karachi, Jebel Ali, Mombasa, Dar es Salaam and Mundra.

Evergreen Line currently operates the Asia, East Africa (AEF) service, with weekly sailings since its inauguration in May 2010. The addition of the IDEA service will enhance the line’s network reach and market presence in this region.
