Four major lines launch new Transatlantic service

COSCO Shipping Lines, OOCL, Ocean Network Express (ONE) and Yang Ming are to launch a new weekly Transatlantic service, East Mediterranean - America Service (EMA). The first commencing voyage is on April, 2020 (subject to FMC filing).

The EMA service, jointly operated by the four lines, will consist of six Panamax vessels.

The port rotation for the weekly service:

Mersin - Haifa - Alexandria - Istanbul - Piraeus - Genoa - Algeciras - New York - Norfolk - Savannah - Algeciras - Mersin.

EMA will offer competitive transit times and provide more service frequencies in the market, says Yang Ming. By including Genoa and Algeciras port calls, the four lines will also engage in Genoa and Algeciras west bound service and provide diverse intra Mediterranean services through multi-stage utilization of the service.
