lobal shipping heavyweights are rushing to open new lines on the trans-Pacific route, seeking to fill the gaps left by the collapse of South Korea’s Hanjin Shipping, which filed for court receivership last week (Aug 31).
The world’s two largest shippers — Denmark-based Maersk Line and Mediterranean Shipping Company — announced earlier this week that they would each deploy six container ships from next week to meet rising demand for the route.
