NYK boosts IEX service with extra vessel

Tokyo: NYK Line has announced that it plans to add an extra vessel to the Indian Subcontinent East Coast Express Service (IEX) this month operated through a slot-charter arrangement with Hapag-Lloyd since July 2007. The addition of the new 4,000teu vessel is expected to allow the company to "better meet the customers' strong demand for space in the fast-growing market."

The upgraded IEX will offer a fixed-day weekly service using seven 4,000teu vessels calling at: Port Muhammad Bin Qasim (Karachi), Pakistan (Thu / Fri) - Nhava Sheva, India (Sun / Mon) - Mundra, India (Tue / Wed) - Damietta, Egypt (Tue / Wed) - New York, United States (Sat / Mon) - Norfolk, United States (Tue / Wed) - Charleston, United States (Thu / Fri) - Port Said, Egypt (Wed / Thu) - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (Sat / Sat) - Port Muhammad Bin Qasim (Karachi).  [28/08/08]
