July 20 - With the launch of a new westbound liner service from Europe to the USA, Chinese-Polish Joint Stock Shipping Company, Chipolbrok has closed the circle around the world in both directions.

The new regular liner service will form part of the line's westbound global activities. Its regular loading port in Europe will be usually Antwerp or Rotterdam and its schedule will include calls at New Orleans and Houston, with other ports on inducement. The service has monthly sailings and cargoes of up to 300 tonnes can be loaded by the Chongming-type vessels which operate this service.

On the regular eastbound circle, the line uses the Wladyslaw Orkan class of ship.
