Evergreen to revise rotations of two North Europe – Far East loops

Evergreen is planning to make significant changes to two of its Far East – Europe services. Effective July, the carrier will modifiy the rotaions of both is ‘CES’ and ‘CEM’ services.

On the Evergeeen-standalone loop ‘CES’, both Colombo calls are to be dropped, as well as Thamesport whereas Le Havre is to be added. Algeciras is to be added in the westbound direction and Jeddah eastbound.

The revised rotation will read as follows:

Hamburg, Rotterdam, Piraeus, Suez Canal (waypoint), Kaohsiung, Ningbo, Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong, Shekou, Tanjung Pelepas, Suez Canal (waypoint), Piraeus, Algeciras, Le Havre, Hamburg.

On ‘CEM’ service which Evergreen jointly operates with Hanjin (‘CUS’), calls at Colombo are to be added both ways, alongside Tanjung Pelepas and Qingdao. In Europe, the ports of Zeebrugge and Algeciras will be included, resulting in the following rotation:

Rotterdam, Felixstowe, Hamburg, Zeebrugge, Algeciras, Suez Canal (waypoint), Colombo, Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Yantian, Tanjung Pelepas, Colombo, Suez Canal (waypoint), Rotterdam.

The changes will result in a second blow for the UK port of Thamesport, which already lost calls from the G6 alliance’s Loop 5 to Southampton, when this service was upgraded to 13,000 teu vessels.
