Hanjin Shipping is pleased to announce that it is introducing slow-steaming in one of its Asia – U.S. East Coast services effective middle of January.

As part of the agreement settled among the CKYH (COSCON, “K”Line, Yang Ming and Hanjin Shipping) Alliance partners, Hanjin Shipping will be beginning slow-steaming in its current AWH (All Water Hanjin) service. Also, while remaining the calling ports and the rotation Hanjin Shipping will be adding one more vessel of 4,000TEU class to the lane in order to better schedule reliability.

Hanjin Shipping comments, “Like many other major shipping carriers, Hanjin Shipping is pleased to participate in slow-steaming to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission in accordance with the global understanding and movement aimed to save the environment.”

Meanwhile, back in July Hanjin Shipping organized a Green Management Team within the company as part of its efforts to improve energy efficiency and to reduce CO2 emission by 15% until 2015. Also, the company recently introduced the Supply Chain Carbon Calculator on its corporate website where customers can calculate the amount of CO2 emission of their cargo so that they can participate in CO2 emission reduction as well.”
