2M alliance announces rotation changes in Transpacific services.

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)
