  • K Line et Yang Ming maintiendront deux services entre l’Europe et l’Asie
    En mars prochain, les armements K Line et Yang Ming vont lancer un service pendulaire conjoint qui remplacera un service transpacifique et un loop entre l’Europe et l’Asie (ainsi qu’évoqué précédement dans nos éditions du 2/11 et 6/12/2001). Une flotte de dix-huit porte-containers de 5.500 TEU animera ce service, dont la rotation exacte fait encore l’objet de discussions. Les deux armements s’engagent pour l’instant dans une phase de transition d’une durée d’un trimestre, qui a débuté en décembre et qui consiste à fusionner deux services hebdomadaires, celui de Yang Ming entre l’Europe et l’Asie et celui de K Line entre l’Europe et le Japon, en un seul service hebdomadaire animé par huit PC rapides (filant 25 noeuds) de 5.500 TEU ayant une capacité reefer de 500 TEU. Ce dernier service a un caractère provisoire.
