MSC, Maersk add Wilmington port call to Asia-USEC service (TP10)
MEDITERRANEAN Shipping Company (MSC) and Maersk Line have added the port of Wilmington in North Carolina to their TP10/Amberjack all-water Asia-US east coast container shipping service that is operated by ten ships, ranging in size from 4,300 to 5,100 TEU.
"North Carolina has a ripe market that continues to drive the decisions of the world's biggest container companies," executive director Paul Cozza of the North Carolina State Ports Authority was quoted as saying in a report by Global Trade Magazine. 
"Our inclusion in this rotation not only improves our visibility in international trade but also ensures the businesses that rely on us will have that much needed connection to Asia." 
The TP10/Amberjack's rotation includes port calls in Qingdao, Xingang, Ningbo, Shanghai, and Busan in Asia. This transpacific service transits the Panama Canal on its way to US east coast ports. It has the fastest coverage from Asia to Wilmington and is the only service offering direct linkage to the US east coast into and out of Xingang.
"Our customers were clamouring for a stable Asia service in this location," said the port authority's chief commercial officer Greg Fennell. 
This announcement follows the recent return of intermodal rail service to the North Carolina ports, and the completion of the turning basin project at Wilmington port, which included the removal of an existing bulk pier and dredging along the port's side of the Cape Fear River to expand the turning basin from 1,200 feet to 1,400 feet to accommodate vessels of up to 10,000 TEU.
