The Port of Felixstowe celebrated the first call of The New World Alliance’s revamped (AEE) service on 3 March. It offers shippers westbound transit times of eight days between Felixstowe and New York.

TNWA (APL, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) and Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL)), has deployed high-reefer-capacity ships on the weekly service offering an average effective space of 3,200teu and, as with the Alliance’s APX service that already calls at the Port of Felixstowe, Maersk Line will take slots. It also marks the return of Hyundai to Felixstowe as a vessel operator.

The first eastbound vessel is expected to arrive at the Suffolk port on 24 March.

The AEE service rotation is: Manzanillo (Panama), Charleston (US), New York (US), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Bremerhaven (Germany), Felixstowe (UK), New York (US), Charleston (US), and Manzanillo (Panama).
