To meet the burgeoning requirement from customers, Evergreen and COSCON will each launch a weekly independent service to cover the China/Arabian Persian Gulf route starting from early June 2008. These will replace the CPG service, jointly operated by Evergreen and COSCON.

Evergreen will deploy six 3,400-teu size vessels into China and Arabian Persian Gulf service (CPG2) with the rotation as Qingdao-Shanghai-Ningbo-Yantian-Hong Kong-Tanjung Pelepas-Jebel Ali-Dammam-Nhava Sheva-Singapore-Kaohsiung-Qingdao.

COSCON will deploy five 3,400-teu size vessels into China and Persian Gulf service (CPG1) with the rotation as Shanghai-Ningbo-Yantian-Singapore-Jebel Ali-Banda Abbas-Karachi-Singapore-Shanghai.

Evergreen will maintain cooperation with COSCON on this trade lane through a slot swap arrangement. With these two new loops, Evergreen and COSCON will be able to widen the range of market visibility in Far East/Middle East trade.
