Maersk Line, the global containerized division of the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group, added Port Miami to its Transpacific 7 (TP7) Service.
 
The first call for the TP7 Service started today at PortMiami with the arrival of the Maersk Kristina, a 6,700 TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit) cargo vessel. The service’s line up will include additional cargo vessels with a capacity of 8,700 TEUs. The South Florida Container Terminal Miami will handle the new service at their PortMiami cargo yard.
 
The new weekly TP7 Service at PortMiami offers more competitive transit times from South East Asia to the East Coast of the United States. PortMiami will be the only direct service to Yantian, China and Kaohsiung, Taiwan in the market today.
 
Westbound rotation includes Savannah, Charleston, Miami, Tangier, Valencia, Suez Canal, Jeddah, Kaohsiung, Ningbo, Shanghai, Yantian and Hong Kong.
 
Eastbound rotation includes Kaohsiung, Ningbo, Shanghai, Yantian, Hong Kong, Tanjung Pelepas, Suez Canal, Tangier, Savannah, Charleston and Miami.
 
PortMiami Director Bill Johnson said he expects that the new service is the first of what will be increasingly larger cargo vessels operating from the Port.
 
“The arrival of Maersk’s TP7 Service underscores the importance of PortMiami’s $2 billion investment in infrastructure improvement projects,” Johnson said. “The deepening of our channel, along with new on-dock rail and the completion of the port tunnel are all critical for the new generation of larger container vessels.”
 
The Maersk Kristina is scheduled to depart on Saturday, May 25.
