Maersk Line is introducing a new service between Asia and the United States West Coast. The TP1 service will complement Maersk Line’s existing product portfolio on the Transpacific. The first sailing is scheduled for 15 September, according to a press release Wednesday.

"We are responding to increased demand in the Transpacific. With supply chains disrupted, many customers are approaching us for transport solutions for their cargo. The TP1 service is a stable, long term solution to meet our customers’ needs," says Klaus Rud Sejling, Head of Maersk Line’s East-West Network.

Maersk looks like obvious choice to buy Hanjin Shipping 

The TP1 service will be calling Yantian, Shanghai, Busan and Los Angeles/Long Beach. It will have six vessels with a capacity of 4000 TEU per week deployed. The TP1 service will be part of the 2M network.
