Evergreen Marine and COSCO will launch a new China-U.S. East Coast/Gulf all-water container service through the Panama Canal in mid-March.
The new service will rotate through the ports of Shanghai, Yantian, Hong Kong, Colon, Savannah, Miami, Colon and back to Shanghai. Evergreen will operate five vessels and COSCO will operate four. The vessels will have a capacity of 2,700 TEU.
Evergreen plans to provide additional service to South America using the service through connections to its North-South Americas shipping network from a dedicated terminal in Colon.
