To: Alvaro Diaz - Transit time China - USWC

According to Nespas, the sea distance from Hong Kong, China to Los Angeles is 6,379 nautical miles. So at average speed of, say 22 knots, it takes the Emma Maersk only about 12 days to sail from Hong Kong to Los Angeles.

In fact, because Emma Maersk currently is not deployed on Transpacific services, no exact transit time is available.

Other current services of Maersk Lines, for example Transpacific 6, need 22 days directly from Hongkong to Los Angeles.

By the way, anyone knows whether ports in US West Coast can meet the vessel?s draft of 15.5 meters?
