In a move designed to significantly enhance its service on the China-Indian Subcontinent trade, Evergreen Line is teaming up with K Line, COSCO, Wan Hai and PIL to offer two new joint services from early September. Both will provide direct calls at Karachi and Mundra and will improve current transit time.
The PMX (Pakistan Mundra Express) service will utilize six ships with 4,200 TEU capacity and call at Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Singapore, Port Klang, Karachi, Mundra, Colombo and Singapore once more before returning to Qingdao. The first sailing on the Evergreen Line’s service is scheduled to depart from Qingdao on September 4th.
The PIX (Pakistan India Express) will employ five ships with 4,200 TEU capacity. This service is scheduled to commence with a sailing from Jiangyin (Fuzhou) on September 8th and call at Hong Kong, Nansha, Shekou, Singapore, Port Klang, Colombo, Karachi, Mundra, Port Klang and then back to Jiangyin.
In addition to providing more efficient shipping service between China and Northwest India as well as Pakistan, the pair of regional services will also further expand and improve connectivity via Evergreen’s transshipment hubs in Singapore, Port Klang, and Colombo.
