TAIWAN: With Yang Ming’s participation in THE Alliance, its customers can continue to expect access to greater capacity and service at multiple locations.

In the US Pacific Northwest, Yang Ming’s service is currently served by three terminals in the Seattle and Tacoma area. The Transpacific northwest PN1 and PN2 services are served by Husky Terminal in Tacoma, and the PN3 service by Stevedoring Services of America at Seattle. The Transatlantic AL5 service is served by Tacoma Container Terminal, which has assumed all operations for Olympic Container Terminal [“OCT”] at berth T-7, as OCT’s lease with the Port of Tacoma expired in July 2017 after thirteen years of successful operations.

In Vancouver, Yang Ming’s operations are served by Delta Port and the Fraser Surrey Docks facilities.

It is also noteworthy to mention that Yang Ming was recently recognized by the Port of Vancouver for having achieved the highest on-time performance (98% of total calls within schedule) among all container lines calling the port in 2016, and awarded 1st place in the Port of Vancouver’s Vessel On Time Performance Program.
