The NE6 service will lose three ports from its rotation with the last calls at Tianjin on 11th April, Xiamen on 19th April, and Hong Kong on 15th June. The service will however add a new call at Qingdao to its port rotation on 19th April 2014. The new route will be inaugurated by HANJIN UNITED KINGDOM. The NE6 service currently deploys 11 vessels on a weekly-frequency and a 77 day-rotation. This gives an average weekly capacity of 12,300 TEU in March.
