April 24, 2014 – In preparation for the coming peak season, Evergreen Line is implementing service enhancements for the Red Sea market. The carrier will adjust the port rotation of its Far East – Red Service (FRS) and launch a new feeder loop. In addition, the line intends to further strengthen its Red Sea service network via slot exchange arrangements with a strategic partner.

This month the eighth ship has been deployed on the FRS service to add a new call at Aden. The adjustment enables a direct service from Central China, Southern China and Southeast Asia to Yemen.

Employing one vessel of 1, 500 TEU, Evergreen Line will also launch a weekly Intra Red Sea feeder service (IRS) in early May. Furthermore, the line will utilize this new IRS loop for a slot exchange arrangement with X-Press, adding a service to Hodeidah, Yemen and Djibouti in East Africa via transhipment in Jeddah.

The port rotations of these service loops are as follows:

FRS: Shanghai, Ningbo, Taipei, Xiamen, Shekou, Tanjung Pelepas, Singapore, Aden, Jeddah, Sokhna, Aqaba, Jeddah, Singapore, Yantian, Shanghai

IRS: Jeddah, Port Sudan, Jeddah
IRS2: Jeddah, Hodeidah, Jeddah
IRS3: Jeddah, Djibouti, Jeddah
