Shipping line UASC is to start a new container service between Northern Europe and the east coast of the United States. The company also extends its reefer capacity.
The weekly service ( NEU1) calls in Rotterdam and four other ports in Northern Europe before crossing the Atlantic to New York, Norfolk, Charleston and Savannah.
UASC ordered 3500 new reefer containers. Both developments are a consequence of the co-operation with CMA CGM and Hamburg Süd, which pulls USAC to the Trans-Atlantic trade routes as well.
