The enhanced network will have a unique Northern China direct call, headhaul new direct port calls including Singapore, Hong Kong, Yantian and Port Klang, and backhaul new direct port calls including Busan, Singapore and Port Klang. The introduction of the CHX and CHX2 services will offer our customers increased frequency of two sailings a week and improved flexibility with the largest capacity share. Through improved accessibility to/from South East India ports including Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Krishnapatnam and Kattupall, we will ensure our customers a world class product between the Far East and South East India.
