The Port of Prince Rupert, DP World Prince Rupert and CN have announced that Yang Ming and its partners in THE Alliance, Hapag-Lloyd and Ocean Network Express, have added Prince Rupert as the first North American port of call on the amended PS8 trans-Pacific service this spring.

 

Originating in the ports of Tianjin, Qingdao, Shanghai and Busan, the new service makes its inaugural call at the Port of Prince Rupert on Saturday, April 21 with the arrival of the 6,500 TEU capacity vessel, the YM Masculinity. The service then sails to Los Angeles, before traveling back up the coast to Tacoma.


Now that it has a second berth, the Fairview Terminal at Prince Rupert has grown strongly, with container numbers up 26% to 926,540 TEU in 2017. Almost all of this is railed inland to Canada and the US, on the CN line that runs directly to Chicago.


“At CN, we believe supply chain collaboration and partnership are the foundation for fostering international trade,” said Keith Reardon, Vice President of Intermodal and Automotive for CN. “We’re proud to work alongside partners such as the Port of Prince Rupert and DP World, and are pleased to welcome THE Alliance to Prince Rupert. With this call, Yang Ming and their alliance partners, Hapag Lloyd and Ocean Network Express, have joined that successful partnership and we look forward to growing our service from Asia to Canadian and U.S. destinations with them.”


“We look forward to welcoming Yang Ming and their partners to the newly expanded DP World Prince Rupert terminal," said Maksim Mihic, General Manager of DP World Canada. "The new PS8 trans-Pacific service highlights the strategic advantage of Fairview Container Terminal as the most efficient and fastest route from Asia to North American markets."
