2010/01/19
Wan Hai Lines and Hanjin Shipping are pleased to announce that they will be cooperating in the Transpacific trade effective middle of March.

SJX (South East Asia – Japan Express) service, launched by Hanjin Shipping last June, is a direct service between Vietnam and the U.S. targeting the Vietnamese and South East Asian markets, which are constantly growing in spite of such economic climate.

According to the carriers, SJX, which is currently operated by Hanjin Shipping, will be inviting Wan Hai Lines as a co-operator with 6 of 4,000TEU class vessels deployed, 5 by Hanjin Shipping and 1 by Wan Hai Lines, adding Hong Kong to the current calling ports in order to attract more cargo from South China areas as well.

Together with this new joint service, Wan Hai Lines will enter into a cross-charter arrangement with Hanjin Shipping on PSX (Pacific Express) service, hence providing customers with additional service coverage.

Meanwhile, Wan Hai Lines and Hanjin Shipping will continue to seek new opportunities to cooperate so as to provide their customers with better service.
