Evergreen Marine Corp. and Wan Hai Lines Ltd. have begun a fixed-day weekly express service from Hong Kong. Known as the Japan-Thailand Express Service (NSE/NS6), the rotation includes the following ports of call: Hong Kong, China; Tokyo, Japan; Yokohama, Japan; Osaka, Japan; Kaohsiung, Taiwan; Hong Kong; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Laem Chabang, Thailand; Hong Kong. Evergreen will provide two 900-TEU (20-foot equivalent units) vessels for the service; Wan Hai Lines will provide one 900-TEU ship.
The new service is seen as an enhancement to each carrier's present service network. It will provide a step-up in service between Japan and Thailand, particularly in the northbound trade between the two countries.
