Maersk to start Sino-Australia service with Cosco, ANL slot charter

6/14/2014 8:53:33 AM

DENMARK's mighty Maersk Line plans to expand its presence on the China-Australia trade through the launch of its Maersk Sino Australia Service (MSAS), by purchasing slots on the Sino Australia Service (SAS) operated by Cosco and ANL.

This weekly service connects Ningbo, Shanghai, Xiamen, Shenzhen-Shekou and Hong Kong to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. It turns in six weeks and is operated by six ships of 5,000-5,800 TEU.

The first sailing involving the world's biggest carrier, and founding member of the P3 Alliance, is scheduled to depart on June 8 from Ningbo, China.

RCL, NYK, MOL, "K" Line, OOCL and Evergreen also take slots on this service, reported Alphaliner.

The service aims to complement other container shipping services that Maersk offers via its Asia-Australia Boomerang service, operated jointly with MSC; and the Yoyo service, a weekly offering maintained through slots on the Far East-Australia joint service of Hapag-Lloyd, Hamburg Sud, HMM and APL.

The MSAS service focuses exclusively on China allowing the ocean liner to offer direct connections from Shekou and Xiamen, China to Australia.
