ANL joins Coscon on China – Australia service

ANL, the Australian arm of the CMA CGM Group, today announced it will become a joint operator on Coscon’s China – Australia service ‘SAS’, with the provision of one vessel. The service turns in six weeks with one skipped sailing and an average weekly teu capacity of 3,661.

It currently deploys five vessels: Coscon provides the elderly panamaxes ZHONG HE, ZHEN HE and SHAN HE, and the 2005-built overpanamax ship COSCO XIAMEN of 5,810 teu. The fifth ship on the ‘SAS’ is PIL’s KOTA LANGSAR, which is scheduled to phase-out at beginning of June and PIL has yet to advise the replacement vessel.

The service’s present call at Nansha is going to be removed after a last visit on 1 June and the revised rotation reads as follows:
Ningbo, Shanghai, Xiamen, Shekou (Shenzhen), Hong Kong, Melbourne, Brisbane, Ningbo.

Slot partners in this service are MOL, NYK, OOCL and Gold Star Line, the intra-Asia specialist of the Zim Group.
