Maersk Line extends ‘South Atlantic Express’ service to Colombia

Maersk Line today announced a revision of its ‘SAEX’ service, a weekly loop that connects the East Coast of North America to Central America and soon also to the North Coast of South America.

As of late August, new calls at the Colombian ports of Santa Marta, Barranquilla and Cartagena will be added. As a consequence, the service’s rotation is to be extended from 21 to 28 days and a fourth ship will be added to the ‘SAEX’ fleet. The additional vessel is yet to be nominated.

At the same time, Maersk Line will remove the service’s present call at Miami. The Florida port will last be visited by the 1,296 teu VARAMO on 21 August.

The revised rotation will read: Savannah, Norfolk, Wilmington (NC), Santo Tomas, Puerto Cortes, Puerto Moin, Manzanillo (Panama), Santa Marta (new), Barranquilla (new), Cartagena (new), Manzanillo (Panama), Puerto Cortes, Santo Tomas, Savannah.
