With immediate effect, K-Line is adding one service to its Far East – ECSA offer with slots on the ‘ESA’, a loop so far jointly operated by Evergreen and Coscon, and on which Zim is becoming a vessel provider.
The service is in the process of being upgraded with 8,000+ teu vessels phasing in and the average weekly capacity to jump from 3,500 teu to 7,600 teu.
In addition to the new slot allocation, K-Line’s offer on the the Asia to South America trade lane so far consisted of 2 services :
- the ‘AESA1’ service on which the carrier is – or rather: was – a vessel provider alongside Zim, Hanjin, CCNI, PIL, Hyundai and NYK. The ‘AESA1’ is however in the process of being closed. It has recently been replaced by a new service where K-Line cooperates with Hyundai, PIL and NYK.
- the ‘AESA C’ service, on which K-Line is slot partner.
