New Taiwan Strait shipping route opens between Fujian and Taipei

 A NEW shipping route has been opened between mainland China and Taiwan to facilitate trade across the Taiwan Strait. Taiwan Wagon Group and Pingtan Transportation Group jointly operate the service.

The 230-TEU Taipei Express, a combo ro-ro ship, will operate the new service from Pingtan, 30 miles from the provincial capital Fuzhou (pop 7.5 million) in eastern Fujian province for Taipei three times a week, reported Xinhua.

The development comes as Pingtan, an island located 126 kilometres from Taiwan, has been working to promote cross-Strait logistics in recent years. In October, Pingtan set up a commercial warehouse in Taipei.
