Emirates Shipping Line today announces restructuring of its existing China India Express Service – CIS where it is a vessel sharing partner. 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 –
North China India Service (NCIS) - to be operated by Maersk and CMA CGM
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
The management is convinced that this wider coverage will offer our customers more options of trading hubs and with three sailings in a week will add to efficiencies in the service structure.
