Cosco Shipping adds Tampa Bay call on Gulf of Mexico loop to Asia


Cosco Shipping will add a call to Port Tampa Bay on its Gulf of Mexico Express (GME) transpacific service, with the first vessel, the 4,250-TEU Cosco Piraeus, scheduled to arrive in Tampa on January 28.
The revised port rotation for the GME service will be: Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Shenzhen-Yantian, Houston, Mobile and Tampa. Import transit time to port Tampa Bay from China will be 31 days, and export transit time from the port to China will be 27 days. Connections on the new service will be provided to/from markets beyond China throughout Asia, reported the American Journal of Tranportation.
"This is a historic development for port Tampa Bay and we are honoured to welcome Cosco Shipping to the port Tampa Bay family," said port Tampa Bay CEO Paul Anderson. "This new direct Asian service will provide importers and exporters very competitive transit times on a weekly fixed day service calling port Tampa Bay every Monday."
Port Tampa Bay is the closest port to Florida's fastest growing region and its largest consumer market - the Tampa Bay/Orlando I-4 Corridor. As trucking costs have risen, port Tampa Bay's location is recognised as offering the lowest delivery cost solution for exporters and importers.
Home to half the state's population of 21 million, the I-4 Corridor has the largest concentration of distribution centres in the state. From this central location in the Florida peninsula, importers and exporters achieve significant savings in their truck delivery costs to serve the entire state, as well as reaching into markets throughout the southeast and beyond.
