MOL Announces Launch of New Asia-USEC Service

(Press Release)
Thursday, May 10, 2012

MOL announced a new service to transport cargo from major Asian ports to key destinations on the U.S. East coast, via the Suez Canal. The service is a direct result of MOL’s ongoing efforts to develop products with competitive transit times and industry-leading on-time performance.
From June 2, the “SVS” (South China/Vietnam – the U.S. South East Coast) service will be jointly operated by MOL and Evergreen. MOL will provide nine ships and Evergreen one ship, with the capacity range of 4,500-5,600 TEU per ship.
The introduction of the new service enables MOL to offer direct connections from Vietnam/South China/Singapore to the U.S. East Coast, including Jacksonville, with competitive transit times and reliable on-time performance. The SVS is the only Asia to U.S. East Coast service with Norfolk as the first call. The service will also call at Savannah and Charleston. 
The SVS is particularly beneficial for U.S. to Asia export customers in the southeast U.S. who want to target emerging markets in Asia with direct Singapore, Vietnam and China calls. The first export call of Singapore allows for easy transshipment to other MOL services, including direct connections to all key ports in Asia.
