 Evergreen Line strengthens Red Sea service network


To provide a more comprehensive service network in Red Sea market, Evergreen Line will partner with CMA CGM to create its new South Red Sea Service (SRS2) linking Southeast Asia, the Indian Sub-continent (ISC) and Red Sea from May 2013. The new loop will offer a convenient link to Ethiopia via Djibouti.

Five ships of 2,200 TEU will be deployed on the SRS2 service. Evergreen Line will provide three of these and CMA CGM the remaining two. The first sailing is planned to depart from Tanjung Pelepas on 2 May 2013. The service will have a weekly frequency and a port rotation of: Tanjung Pelepas, Colombo, Djibouti, Aden (Yemen), Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), Port Sudan (Sudan), Djibouti, Colombo, Port Klang and Tanjung Pelepas.

In addition to strengthening the service network in Red Sea, the new SRS2 service will enable Evergreen Line to further expand its port coverage in East African market following the inauguration of the line’s ISC-Mauritius-Mozambique-Africa (IMMA) service which was launched earlier this month.
