The Asia Kenya Express(AKX) - has a port rotation of Port Klang - Singapore

- Colombo- Mombasa - Colombo - Port Klang

 

Both services will commence their voyage in December 2014 with AKX sailing Singapore port on 6th December while ATX starting on 9th December also from Singapore

To make these two services operationally effective, 6 vessels of 2500~2700 TEU nominal capacity will be deployed on the ATX service and 5 vessels of 2700 TEU nominal capacity will be deployed on the AKX service.

The new agreement with APL, Maersk, OOCL, CMA CGM, Hamburg Süd and RCL will deploy three Far East- Indian Subcontinent services which will provide regular sailings between Asia’s major trading hubs and will also eliminate service duplication between carriers.

The new port rotation for the three services are as follows –

Xingang – Dalian – Qingdao – Kwangyang – Pusan – Ningbo – Hong Kong – Singapore – Tanjung Pelepas – Colombo – Pipavav – Nhava Sheva – Port Qasim – Singapore – Xingang

 

Central China India Service (CCIS) - to be operated by Hamburg Sud, OOCL and RCL Shanghai – Ningbo – Xiamen – Hong Kong – Singapore – Colombo – Nhava Sheva – Pipavav – Port Klang – Singapore – Hong Kong – Shanghai

 

South China India Service (SCIS) - to be operated by Emirates Shipping Line, APL and OOCL Nansha – Chiwan – Hong Kong – Singapore – Colombo – Nhava Sheva – Pipavav – Colombo – Port Klang – Singapore – Nansha
