Evergreen Line and China Shipping to launch new trans-Pacific service


Evergreen Line and China Shipping will commence a new trans-Pacific service later this month linking Los Angeles and Oakland with central and northern China.

To be called the China/South US West Coast Service 2 (CPS2), this additional service is in response to the booming Asia/US market.

The port rotation is Oakland – Los Angeles – Qingdao – Shanghai – Ningbo – Oakland. The CPS2 service will initially deploy five 4,000 TEU vessels by Evergreen Line and China Shipping. Round-trip transit time will be 35 days.

The first vessel to depart will be 'Ever Develop' from Qingdao on May 29 and expected to arrive in Oakland on June 13.

Evergreen is already involved in the original CPS service via a slot charter agreement with China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) on its Asia America Central (AAC) service. Ports on the CPS2 service are covered by the AAC/CPS service.
