Ocean Network Express (ONE) is launching the Latin-East-Coast Europe Express (LUX), a new weekly service connecting Europe and the Mediterranean to the South America East Coast.

The LUX service is ONE’s first dedicated service connecting Europe and the Mediterranean to South America East Coast and is designed to provide a competitive northbound transit time from the East Coast of South America to the Mediterranean and Europe.

This new service offers customers a competitive alternative to the existing products on the market, especially for refrigerated cargo. It is also the only service on the market making a direct call from Lisbon to South America East Coast, providing customers with the opportunity to ship from these unique port pairs.

“South America has always been of strategic importance to our global network,” said Yu Kurimoto, Managing Director of ONE. “The launch of the LUX service demonstrates ONE’s commitment to providing our customers with excellent, reliable, efficient, and comprehensive services. We are constantly looking for ways to enhance our products and offerings, and the LUX service represents a significant step forward in meeting the needs of our customers in this important region.”

The inaugural sailing for LUX will commence from Montevideo on 16th September with the following rotation: Rotterdam – London Gateway – Hamburg – Antwerp – Lisbon – Algeciras – Santos – Paranagua – Montevideo – Buenos Aires – Itapoa – Paranagua – Santos – Rio De Janeiro – Algeciras – Rotterdam
