TMM Lines has launched a weekly fixed day service between Asia, South Africa and East Coast South America.
The service, known as the Asia-Africa-Americas Service, began with the M/V “Harmony Container” sailing southbound on August 31 from Shanghai.
Juan Manuel Gonzalez, vice president, TMM Lines says the service was established in response to demand from customers, looking beyond TMM’s traditional trade routes.
“Our East Coast South America clients now have a new link with South Africa and Asia. This service will also allow us to offer a link between South Africa and the US Gulf/Mexico via transhipment in South America,” he said.
Transit times include just 11 days from Singapore to Durban, 29 days from Hong Kong to Buenos Aires and 15 days from Durban to Laem Chabang.
Port rotation is Shanghai, Pusan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Santos, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban, Singapore, Laem Chabang, Hong Kong, Shanghai.
TMM Lines operates shipping services between ports in Asia, Mexico, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Canada, the US West Coast, the US East Coast and US Gulf, North Europe and the Mediterranean.
TMM Lines is part of the CP Ships group, the container shipping subsidiary of Canadian Pacific Limited.
