TMM Lines upgrades Mexico-Asia service

by Canadian Shipper

TMM Lines is adding the Chinese ports of Shanghai and Chiwan to its Mexico-Asia service.

It is also replacing the six ships on the service with new and faster ships and renaming the service Mexico-Asia Premier

Senior Vice-President Juan Manuel Gonzalez says there is a growing demand from Chinese exporters on the Pearl River delta for fast reliable services to the U.S. and Mexico. Shanghai is also a rapidly expanding trade centre

"The transpacific is an important trade lane for us and one we have a lot of experience in serving. We believe that the Asian countries and China especially, will continue to increase the level of trade with Mexico and the US over the coming years," says Gonzalez

The six 4,050 teu ships, all capable of 24.5 knots, each have a reefer capacity of 400 teu, giving Central American and Mexican exporters the capacity for perishable cargo.

The new port rotation is: Chiwan, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Pusan, Yokohama(EB), Los Angeles, Ensenada, Manzanillo, Yokohama(WB), Kobe, Kaoshiung, Chiwan.
