Cosco, the world’s third’s largest containerline, continues to extend its global reach. The Chinese giant will enter the North Europe – Canada trade next month, co-loading on a weekly service operated jointly by MSC, Hapag-Lloyd and Cosco subsidiary, OOCL. The service, which turns in four weeks, uses four ships ranging in size from 2,800 to 4,800 teu.
