HONG Kong's Orient Oversea Container Line (OOCL), now a unit of Cosco, has announced the launch a new East Mediterranean-America Service (EMA), to be jointly operated by Cosco Shipping Lines, Ocean Network Express, and Yang Ming.

The four container lines say that the launch of the new weekly Transatlantic service is aimed at delivering a more efficient and comprehensive service network. The first commencing voyage is in April 2020, subject to Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) filing.



Six Panamax vessels will be deployed on the EMA service. The port rotation for the weekly service is Mersin, Haifa, Alexandria, Istanbul, Piraeus, Genoa, Algeciras, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Algeciras, and returning to Mersin.



'EMA, as a dedicated service between East Mediterranean and East Coast America, will offer competitive transit times and provide more service frequencies in the market,' the four shipping lines said in a statement.



'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 utilisation of the service.



'With the introduction of the new EMA service, the four lines are pleased to offer enhanced service quality by meeting customer's demand in the niche market,' the statement added.
