New ocean cargo service introduced to Latin America

Seaports on the U.S. eastern seaboard will be getting new business as the Atlantic North South Service gets underway next month.

Evergreen Line, NYK Line (NYK), Hanjin Shipping (Hanjin) and Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) will jointly launch a new service – called ANS – on March 22, linking the U.S. East Coast and South America.

For Evergreen, the new ANS service, commencing from Norfolk marks a return to the North America-South America market. The participating carriers will deploy a total of six 2,100 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessels to operate the service. Evergreen will deploy one vessel, along with Hanjin and HMM. NYK will deploy three vessels.

The port rotation for the 42-day voyage is:
Norfolk - New York - Savannah - Miami - Caucedo (Dominican Republic) - Santos (Brazil) - Navegantes (Brazil) - Rio De Janeiro (Brazil) - Vitoria (Brazil) - Caucedo (Dominican Republic) – Norfolk.

Kevin T. Lynskey, Assistant Director, Port Miami, told LM that trade with Latin America is ramping up.

“We feel that there are several key infrastructure improvements that will attract future business,” he said. The first is the future completion of the deep dredge project that will move Miami to 50 feet of water depth, and subsequently allowing the ocean carriers to route their larger vessels to.”

Lynskey added that the economic advantages of being able to accommodate the larger vessels is significant, with estimates of a 30-50 percent container slot fee savings being projected for the 8,000 TEU vessels versus the 4,800 TEU vessels of today.
