"K" Line and Yang Ming Enhance All-Water East Coast Service

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. ("K" Line) has 3 services, which are joint services with Yang Ming Maritime Transport Corp (Yang Ming), Cosco Container Lines (COSCON) and Hanjin Shippping Co., Ltd, between Asia and U.S. East Coast. "K" Line is pleased to announce that we will restructure AWE-3 services by reducing fleet deployment from 9 vessels to 8 vessels. Consequently transit time between Asia and U.S East coast will be dramatically improved. By this enhancement, the lines are confident that higher quality service will be performed for customer satisfaction on Asia/U.S East Coast trade.
