The largest container shipping alliance, the 2M alliance (Maersk and MSC), has decided to proceed with several changes in two Transpacific services.
Firstly, the TP10/Amberjack service will run on the following rotation, effective from May, linking south and central China and South Korea to the east coast of the United States:
Qingdao (China) – Ningbo (China) – Shanghai (China) – Busan (South Korea) – Panama Canal (Panama) – Kingston (US) – Charleston (US) – Savannah (US) – Norfolk (US) – Kingston (US) – Panama Canal (Panama) – Busan (North Korea) – Qingdao (China)
Calls at Jacksonville and Wilmington will be removed and switched to the updated TP16/Emerald service, which will begin on 6 May with the 8,238 TEU vessel Mount Everest.
Likewise beginning in May, the TP16/Emerald service will follow a new rotation, dropping Norfolk but adding Jacksonville and Wilmington to compensate for the removal of these ports on the TP10/Amberjack service:
Xiamen (China) – Yantian (China) – Shanghai (China) – Busan (China) – Panama Canal (Panama) – Cristobal (Panama) – Savannah (US) – Jacksonville (US) – Wilmington (US) – New York (US) – Suez Canal (Egypt) – Singapore (Malaysia) – Xiamen (China)
