UWL, Swire Shipping add westbound call in Busan to Sun Chief Express

UWL and Swire Shipping announced the addition of a new port call for export refrigerated containers in Busan in South Korea on the Sun Chief Express service in response to rising customer demand.

This new port call coincides with a recent adjustment to the Sun Chief Express schedule, which was made to increase efficiency while also adding the Busan call.

The new service rotation is now Seattle - Busan - Haiphong - Ho Chi Minh – Seattle.

"Customers who use Sun Chief Express for import services can benefit from UWL's strong regional impact in the Pacific Northwest, including alliances with its sister businesses Pacific Cascade and World Distribution Services," said UWL.

"Many clients have expressed a strong preference for a return to the shorter Ho Chi Minh - Seattle eastbound voyage, as the service was initially conceived, as well as a quicker Seattle – Haiphong leg on the westbound voyage," stated Duncan Wright, UWL president.

He added, "Swire Shipping's decision to add this call for export reefer containers in Busan will give export customers additional reach into Asia and provide American agricultural exporters better access to global markets."
