Coscon today announced it will start taking slots on the multi-coloured Far East – ECSA ‘NHX’ service jointly operated by NYK (four ships), Hyundai (three ships), PIL (three ships) and K-Line (two ships).
Coscon is to participate with immediate effect and begins to slot with the departure of the 5,023 teu HYUNDAI PRIVILEGE sailing from Busan on 1 June. The brand new ship is actually on her maiden voyage and her entry is part of a moderate capacity upgrade of the ‘NHX’, which sees baby-overpanamax ships of 4,500 to 5,000 teu phase in. These include units of K-Line’s B-class, NYK’s F-class and Hyundai’s P-class.
For Coscon, the new offer adds to its ‘ESA’, on which the Chinese carrier became a vessel provider earlier this year.
