Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) will introduce a new Middle East/Indian Subcontinent – North Europe Service (IP3) as an extension of its North Europe service network to the East Indian Subcontinent.
The IP3, to be launched in October this year, will be the only dedicated East India to North Europe service in the market, according to OOCL.
“It provides extensive coverage of India’s East Coast and direct linkage between the Middle East, India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Greece, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium and France. It also offers more competitive and reliable services than transhipment options,” OOCL stated.
The first sailing will begin from India’s Vizag on 27 October 2019.
The port rotation will be Vizag, Krishnapatnam, Chennai, Tuticorin, Colombo, Cochin, Damietta, Piraeus, Rotterdam, London Gateway, Hamburg, Antwerp, Le Havre, Damietta, Jeddah, Colombo, and back to Vizag.
