Taiwanese shipping company Wan Hai Lines has recently announced an upgrade to its Asia-Pacific Service (AP1), aiming to expand its current network on the West Coast of the United States.

Wan Hai's AP1 service will replace the existing AA3 service and will be operated jointly with the Ocean Network Express (ONE).

Wan Hai Lines will deploy 5 vessels, and the Singaporean container shipping company, which has also introduced a new service, will add an additional 2 container vessels to this service. All vessels will have a nominal capacity of 13,000 TEUs.

According to ONE, the AP1 service will run directly from Taipei and Shekou to the West Coast of the United States, enhancing the overall service network. The return leg of this route offers fast transit times from the West Coast of the United States to Vietnam, with an estimated transit time of 19 days to Hai Phong and 22 days to Cai Mep.

Mr. Yu Kurimoto, CEO of ONE, emphasizes the importance of the Pacific transshipment market in ONE's global network, stating, "The introduction of the AP1 service underscores ONE's steadfast commitment to this crucial trade route. Complementing our existing product portfolio, we are dedicated to providing excellent, reliable, and comprehensive services."

The maiden voyage of the AP1 service is scheduled to commence from the port of Hai Phong in Vietnam around late April or May 2024. This upgraded service will have a fixed route lasting 56 days.

The route for the AP1 service is as follows: Hai Phong (Vietnam) – Cai Mep (Vietnam) – Shekou (China) – Xiamen (China) – Taipei (China) – Ningbo (China) – Shanghai (China) – Los Angeles (USA) – Oakland (USA) – Shekou – Hai Phong.
