With the launch of two new services - the ISC-Bangladesh Service and the Intra-Gulf Service, Evergreen Line will enhance its service network in the Indian-subcontinent and the Gulf.
Evergreen, NYK and Simatech will launch a weekly service connecting West India and Pakistan directly to Bangladesh. It will also serve as a double loop feeder service connecting the hub in Colombo to Chittagong and Karachi/Mundra. Employing four vessels of 1,600 TEU - 1,800 TEU, the ISC-Bangladesh weekly service will commence with an inaugural sailing from Chittagong on June 27. The rotation will then follow by ports in Chittagong, Colombo, Karachi, Mundra,Colombo and Chittagong respectively.
In addition, Evergreen will deploy a 1,600-TEU vessel on the weekly Intra-Gulf Service commencing July 5. The feeder service will efficiently bridge the line’s network hub in Jebel Ali (UAE) and Umm Qasr in Iraq.
The new services planned will further expand Evergreen’s regional service horizon and closely connect Evergreen Line’s global service through its newly developed network in Colombo and Jebel Ali.
