The world’s largest containership line recently said that they will be adding capacity on eastbound trans-Pacific sailings in response to Hanjin’s bankruptcy.

Maersk Line’s new TP1 service between Asia and the United States West Coast will complement their existing product portfolio on the Transpacific. The first sailing is scheduled for September 15th.

“We are responding to increased demand in the Transpacific. With supply chains disrupted, many customers are approaching us for transport solutions for their cargo. The TP1 service is a stable, long term solution to meet our customers’ needs,” says Klaus Rud Sejling, Head of Maersk Line’s East-West Network.

The TP1 service will be calling Yantian, Shanghai, Busan and Los Angeles/Long Beach. It will have six (6) vessels with a capacity of 4,000 TEU per week deployed. The TP1 service will be part of the 2M network.
