A new route on Hanjin"s Far East service
Hanjin Shipping's direct Far East service (East Mediterranean/Black Sea Express Service ? EBX) altered its route beginning in June. The new route offers exporters significant advantages in transit times.
The global carrier in the international transportation sector, Hanjin Shipping continues to offer new alternatives to exporters and importers. Hanjin has specified a new route for the Far East service it launched in 2007. The new route is Shanghai-Ningbo-Shekou-Singapore-Istanbul-Constanta-Odessa-Constanta-Istanbul. The service discharges import freight on its first stop at Istanbul and continues on to the ports of Constanta and Odessa. Under the new schedule the vessel returns to Istanbul in order to pick up export freight. This improves transit times by approximately 7-8 days.
Importers also benefit
Hanjin always offers importers the best alternatives, providing a two-day advantage in import transit times with its upgraded direct service to Istanbul. Hanjin Shipping has also increased capacity on this service, utilizing a total of eight vessels. Two of these have a capacity of 5,200 TEU, two with 5100 TEU, three with 4,700 TEU and one with 4,500 TEU capacities.
