South Atlantic Express Service Enhancements

Friday, February 06, 2009

Maersk Line announced the full extent of revisions to its current South Atlantic Express (SAE) service including the addition of calls to the Port of Savannah and the Port of Wilmington.

 This service also signals the initiation of Maersk Line service to the Port of Wilmington, North Carolina, with a four-day transit from Santo Tomas and full gate availability on Saturdays in Wilmington for pickup and deliveries.

 As previously announced, this weekly service reflects omission of the northbound call to Miami, and removal of service to the Port of Charleston from the schedule. The Miami adjustment will become effective with the sailing of the Maersk Tarragona, voyage 0908, departing Santo Tomas on 8 February 2009. The final sailing from Charleston will be the southbound departure of the Maersk Tarragona, voyage 0911, on 3 March 2009. The revised South Atlantic Express service will make its first northbound call to Savannah on 5 March 2009 by the Maersk Tangier, voyage 0910, followed by its initial call to Wilmington on 6 March 2009.

The new SAE rotation is as follows: Savannah (US), Wilmington (US), Norfolk (US), Miami (US), Puerto Cortes (Honduras) and Santo Tomas (Guatemala).
