Maersk updates its Far East to Subcontinent service network

Maersk Line has updated its service network in the Far East Asia to Indian Subcontinent trade with the introduction of two new products, Chennai Express service (CHX) and FI3.

The new rotation of Chennai Express will be Singapore-Tanjung Pelepas-Ennore-Krishnapatnam-Visakhapatnam and will be effective from 17 October. The first vessel which will sail under this rotation will be the 4,178TEU Venetia.

CHX will drop its Laem Chabang call but 2M Alliance's TP11/Elephant service will add a Laem Chabang direct call to provide connecting capacity for Thai volumes to the Indian Subcontinent, said the Danish line.

Maersk will change the TP11/Elephant service from next week (week 43) and from now on it will run under the following port rotation: Laem Chabang, Singapore, Tanjung Pelepas, Colombo, Salalah, Newark, Norfolk, Savannah, Freeport.

In addition, the new FI3 will commence on 5 November out of the port of Qingdao, calling at Qingdao - Xingang – Gwangyang – Busan - Tanjung Pelepas – Colombo - Jawaharlal Nehru - Pipavav – Colombo - Singapore.

With the introduction of the updated FI3 service, existing FI2 and FI3 services will be terminated. The last westbound sailing of FI2 will be APL Columbus (voyage 201D), estimated to depart from Shanghai on 20 October, while the last eastbound sailing will be APL Columbus (voyage 201E), estimated to depart from Jawaharlal Nehru on 10 November.

The last westbound sailing of FI3 will be Maersk Shams (voyage 043W), estimated to depart from Dalian on 23 October, while the last eastbound sailing will be Maersk Shams (voyage 047E), estimated to depart from Jawaharlal Nehru on 22 November.
