|In order to better cater for your shipping needs with our East Coast Express 1 (ECX1) product, we would like to inform you that New York (Maher Terminal) is now being added in the port rotation to provide express services from Central China, while the call to Colon, Panama, will be dropped.
Transit times to New York from Shanghai and Ningbo will take 23 and 25 days respectively and will be among the most competitive in the market. This is designed to provide customers with a significantly improved product by taking advantage of the new air draft clearance of the Bayonne Bridge to accommodate for the 13,000-14,000 TEU containerships.
ECX1 new port rotation: Hong Kong – Yantian – Ningbo – Shanghai – via Panama Canal – New York – Norfolk – Savannah – Charleston – Hong Kong
Effective vessel voyage: CMA CGM ROOSEVELT (ROV) 123E/124W ETA Hong Kong on October 18 in Week 42 for EASTBOUND, and ETA New York on November 18 in Week 46 for WESTBOUND.
