OOCL is pleased to announce that a new China-India Express Service (CIX), jointly operated with APL, will be launched with the first sailing from Xingang on May 13, an enhancement of existing NSS feeder service. OOCL will contribute two of the five 2000-2500 TEU vessels on the service.
The new CIX service has been provided as a response to the robust growth and customer demand in container traffic between China and India, and incorporates a Singapore-Nhava Sheva feeder service for express transport. This service covers three major North China Ports, including Xingang, Dalian and Qingdao offering dedicated service from North and South China to Southeast Asia and India with competitive transit time.
The CIX offers an extensive port rotation, with a service schedule calling at Xingang (Sun/Mon) – Dalian (Tue/Tue) – Qingdao (Thu/Thu) – Hong Kong (Sun/Sun) – Shekou (Mon/Mon) – Singapore (Fri/Sat) – Colombo (Tue/Wed) – Nhava Sheva (Sat/Sun) – Singapore (Sat/Sun) – Hong Kong (Wed/Thu) – back to Xingang (Sun/Mon) for a 35-day round trip.
