TNWA-Hanjin-UASC to launch new Asia-Black Sea service

Tokyo: The New World Alliance (TNWA - made up of MOL, APL, and HMM) has joined forces with Hanjin Shipping and United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) for a new Asia-East Mediterranean / Black Sea service, named "EBX" (East-Mediterranean / Black Sea Express).
Beginning early November, the EBX service will deploy eight 2,500-2,700teu vessels (three operated by MOL, two operated by APL and one each operated by Hanjin, HMM, and UASC). It will call at the following ports on a 56-day rotation:
Shanghai - Hong Kong - Yantian - Singapore - Damietta - Istanbul - Constanza - Illychevsk - Izmir - Damietta - Jeddah - Singapore - Shanghai

In a statement to the press, a spokesperson for TNWA said, "The introduction of the new service will enable TNWA, Hanjin and UASC to offer direct service from major Asian export hubs to key destinations in the East Mediterranean / Black Sea area, where the market is growing at remarkable speed."  [04/10/07]
