New World Alliance Adds New Thailand-US West Coast Vessel to PSX Service

Member ocean carriers of The New World Alliance, or TNWA – APL, Hyundai Merchant Marine and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines – announced plans Thursday to revamp the group's Pacific Southwest Express, or PSX service.

The alliance said it would add an additional vessel to the PSX service for a direct service from Thailand to the US West Coast, effective March 15.

The new eastbound PSX port rotation will be as follows: Laem Chabang (Sun/Mon) – Cai Mep (Wed/Fri) – Hong Kong (Sun/Mon) – Yantian (Mon/Tue) – Los Angeles (Mon/Thu) – Oakland (Fri/Sat) – Tokyo (Thu/Thu) – Xiamen (Sun/Mon) – Hong Kong (Tue/Tue) – Da Chan Bay (Wed/Thu) – Laem Chabang (Sun).

The TNWA member lines serve more than 40 ports in the major East-West container trades with a fleet of more than 100 container vessels.
