In light of the strong growth potential of the Intra-Asia trades, Evergreen Line is implementing service enhancements for its services to and from the Southeast Asian markets. The carrier will launch its new Taiwan-Shekou-Malacca Strait Service (TSS) later in March and will also introduce a dedicated Taiwan - Hong Kong Service (THK).

Evergreen will deploy three ships of 1,600 TEU on the TSS service, connecting Taiwan, Southern China, Singapore and Malaysia. The start of this weekly service will be marked by the inaugural sailing from Kaohsiung on 19 March. The port rotation will then follow as Hong Kong - Shekou - Port Klang - Penang - Port Klang - Singapore - Tanjung Pelepas - Kaohsiung.

This new service string will not only provide an efficient link for regional trade but also connect into the global networks of Evergreen Line and its alliance partners via hubs at Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tanjung Pelepas.

In addition, this month will be the start of the THK Service. Employing a 1,200 TEU vessel, the weekly service will have a port rotation of Taichung, Taipei, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong and Taichung with its maiden voyage from Hong Kong on March 25th.  

The goals of this move are to improve service frequency between Taiwan and Hong Kong and to increase connectivity to Evergreen's global network. Moreover the service will provide a 'Blue Way' coastal feeder option between Taichung, Taipei and Kaohsiung, thereby significantly reducing the demand for trucking across Taiwan. This arrangement is in line with Evergreen's environmental policy to contribute to the sustainability of natural environment.
