Hainan PO Shipping CO., Ltd., a new trans-Pacific ocean carrier, has inaugurated a call at the Port of Oakland, Calif. The service links the U.S. West Coast with five major ports in China: Hong Kong, Yantian, Xiamen, Ningbo and Shanghai. PO Shipping made its first call at Oakland on December 20, with arrival of the POS Hong Kong. The carrier's weekly Central Asia Express (CAE) service was launched in August, 2010, with Long Beach, Calif. as its only U.S. port of call. The service deploys five vessels in the 2,700 to 3,200 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) range. Each ship calls Saturday at the Oakland International Container Terminal facility at Berths 57-59. PO Shipping also operates a feeder network in China, accessing cargo from the outlying ports of Qingdao, Tianjin, Dalian and Nansha for transshipment to the CAE service and direct transit to Oakland.
