Enhanced United States East Coast to South Africa Service


Dear MOL Customer:

 

We are pleased to announce the enhancement of the Europe-South Africa (SRX) service, which will provide benefits for both dry and refrigerated exports from the United States East Coast to South Africa.

 

We have added a second Rotterdam call on the SRX resulting in a faster connection from the United States East Coast to South Africa. The enhanced SRX corresponds to the United States-Europe (AX1) sailing of Houston Express 078E, which calls at Charleston on September 18 and Savannah on September 19.

 

We will be able to:

·         Reduce the estimated transit time from the United States East Coast to South Africa by seven days.

·         Reduce the estimated layover in Rotterdam to approximately four days.
