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.

“The Mexico-Asia Premier is a weekly, fixed-day service and offers some of the fastest transit times across the Pacific — for instance, just 17 days from Shanghai to Manzanillo,” says Juan Manuel Gonzalez, senior vice-president of TMM. “We also offer fast transit times between Asia and Central America, by transhipping cargo at Manzanillo onto our own services to and from Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Panama.”

The six 4,050-TEU ships, all capable of 24.5 knots, each have a reefer capacity of 400 TEU.

TMM also operates the Asia-Americas service, which sails between Asia and ports along the west coast of the Americas from Vancouver to Lirquen.

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