New intra-Asian service to be launched by Yang Ming
The Keelung (Taiwan)-based Yang Ming Marine Transport (Yang Ming) will extend its Intra-Asia service network by launching a new Taiwan–Japan service (JCH). The JCH service, which will provide weekly direct service between Kaohsiung, Osaka, Kobe and Hakata, will be effective from 26 January 2020.
The launch of the JCH link will complement Yang Ming’s existing services between Taiwan and Japan, namely JMV, JTC, JTS, JTX and PAS. The carrier expects to cut the transit time between Taiwan and Japan’s Kansai region by one to two days at least.
With the new link, Yang Ming aims at providing customers with more comprehensive and competitive services between Taiwan and Japan. (mw)
