OOCL to introduce new China East Coast Express 2 service
Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) will introduce a new China East Coast Express 2 (CEC2) service to supplement its existing network.

The new CEC2 will compliment its existing CEC service and enhance the carrier’s product portfolio covering the Asia to US East Coast markets.

The first sailing for CEC2 will be the 8,440 teu containership Zim San Diego, scheduled for departure from China’s Da Chan Bay on 30 May.

“The CEC2 will strengthen our service coverage, offering competitive connections from Cap Mep to New York in 26 days, as well as meeting the service network requirements of customers trading in this region,” OOCL said in a statement.

The port rotation of CEC2 will be Da Chan Bay, Yantian, Cai Mep, Singapore, Colombo (via Suez Canal), New York, Savannah, Norfolk (via Suez Canal), Singapore, and back to Da Chan Bay.
