Evergreen links up with NYK, Hanjin, Hyundai on South America service

2012 03 05

TAIWAN-based Evergreen Line plans to join a service between the US east coast and South America currently operated by NYK, Hanjin Shipping and Hyundai Merchant Marine, starting from March.

The carrier is making a return to the service after pulling out of a space sharing agreement on the same trade lane with Hamburg Sud in 2008 during the sharp downturn in shipping.

The shipping company continued its service between Asia and the east coast of South America during the downturn, reported American Shipper, so its re-entry will allow Evergreen to serve shippers on that route that also need to move cargo between South America and the US, said vice president Dominic Obrigkeit.

Evergreen will contribute one ship to the Atlantic North South service, as will Hanjin and Hyundai and NYK will contribute three. The six ships have capacity of about 2,100 TEU each and operate in the following rotation: Norfolk, New York, Savannah, Miami and Caucedo in the Dominican Republic, and then four ports in Brazil, namely, Santos, Navegantes, Rio De Janeiro and Vitoria before returning north to Caucedo and Norfolk.
