Maersk Sealand adds capacity to Far East/Mexico loop
Maersk Sealand has added four ships and improved to fixed-day weekly the sailing frequency of its recently started Far East-Central America-Mexico Express (CAM-MEX) service.
The CAM-MEX service started in early March, initially using three vessels calling roughly every fortnight.
The service now uses seven ships of about 2,800 TEUs and calls Kaohsiung; Chiwan; Hong Kong; Kwangyang; Ensenada, Mexico; Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico; Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala; Balboa, Panama; and back to Kaohsiung.
The changes to the CAM-MEX service will see about an additional 46,000 TEUs in annual one-way capacity in the transpacific trade.
