All slots fully booked through fifth voyage

SEOUL: HMM’s independent and recently launched Asia-North Europe Express (AEX) service has started off strongly, with all slots fully booked from the service’s maiden voyage on April 8 to fifth voyage on May 7.

The AEX service, which was launched in accordance with increased customer demand for express services, is independently operated by HMM outside of its strategic cooperation with 2M.

HMM deploys ten 4,600 TEU Panamax vessels for the AEX service, along the following route, Busan-Shanghai-Ningbo-Kaohsiung-Shenzhen-Singapore-Colombo-Rotterdam-Hamburg-Southampton-Singapore-Hong Kong-Busan.

The AEX service covers Busan to Rotterdam in 30 days, and to Hamburg in 32 days.

The service also covers Shanghai to Rotterdam in 28 days, and to Hamburg in 30 days, which is two to five days faster than existing Northern Europe services.
