Hapag-Lloyd, Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) and Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL), three members of the self-styled Grand Alliance, have restructured and upgraded their Central China Express Service (CCX).
The alliance will adjust the port rotation of CCX to Ningbo / Shanghai / Los Angeles / Ningbo. CCX will call at the new Yangshan terminal in Shanghai. In addition, four 5,500-TEU vessels will be deployed in the service, an upgrade in capacity from four 4,000-TEU vessels.
With these changes, the new CCX service will offer a direct call from Shanghai to Los Angeles with a transit time of 10 days.
The fourth member of the alliance, MISC Berhad, does not provide trans-Pacific services.
