With this service, the partners are offering, among other things, the only direct service from Europe to and the shortest connection to the industrial zones around the seaport.
The two lines will be deploying six 4,200 TEU vessels in this service, with Hapag-Lloyd providing four units and Hamburg Süd two.  The new EPIC Service will have the following port rotation: - Tilbury - - Gioia Tauro - Jebel Ali - - Mundra - Nhava Sheva - Gioia Tauro - .
All key ports of the western and eastern Mediterranean will be linked with the Middle East, and via the central hub, Gioia Tauro.
