Evergreen and Wan Hai launch Japan-Thailand Express service

Evergreen Marine (Taiwan) and Wan Hai Lines will co-operate to enhance their already extensive intra-Asia networks with the launch of the Japan-Thailand Express (NSE/NS6) service.

The new service is in response to shippers’ demand for additional capacity, particularly northbound from Thailand to Japan. The fixed-day weekly service will link key ports in Japan with Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam and Thailand. Three 900 TEU vessels will be deployed on the new NSE/NS6 service – two from Evergreen and one from Wan Hai Lines.

The service will begin in late-September.

Ports of call on the 21-day rotation are: Hong Kong (HIT) > Tokyo > Yokohama > Osaka > Kaohsiung > Hong Kong > Ho Chi Minh > Laem Chabang > Hong Kong.
