AUX Service to Provide Link from China to New York

April 10, 2007

Italia Marittima has upgraded its AUX transpacific service linking China with the US East Coast via the Panama Canal to provide shippers with a direct call at New York. The revised service gives customers more competitive transit times, thanks to the deployment of faster vessels, which will provide a 56-day rotation instead of the current 63, while capacity will increase substantially with eight vessels of 4,000 to 4,500 TEU replacing the nine vessels of approximately 2,800 TEU currently serving the route. The AUX service also maintains calls at Colon Container Terminal (CCT) in Panama, providing connections to the Evergreen Group’s extensive Caribbean feeder network. The port rotation is as follows: Qingdao – Shanghai – Ningbo – Colon Container Terminal – Kingston – Port Everglades – New York – Savannah – Kingston – Colon Container Terminal – Qingdao. The first sailing of the upgraded AUX service departed Qingdao in China on 9 April.
