In order to offer an express service on the North Europe – Mediterranean trade, Evergreen is teaming up with COSCO and YML to create a new joint operation, to be branded Europe – Med Express (EMX).
This weekly service will utilize five ships of 4,250 teu-class; one provided by Evergreen and YML respectively and the remaining three by COSCO. The first sailing is scheduled to depart from Rotterdam on 27th of November with a port rotation as follows:
Rotterdam – Felixstowe– Hamburg – Antwerp – Casablanca – Piraeus – Alexandria – Haifa– Mersin – Piraeus – Casablanca – Rotterdam.
The launch of this new service will enable Evergreen to provide a direct connection from North Europe to the Mediterranean, particularly to/from Morocco, Turkey, Israel and Egypt and is open to all types of cargo, including reefers and special containers. This new service is being introduced in response to increased customer demand for a reliable service and demonstrates Evergreen’s strong commitment to enhance efficiency on Europe-Med routes.
