ACW Service Enhancements


Dear MOL Customer:

 

MOL (America) Inc. is pleased to announce the implementation of our enhanced America’s Coast West (ACW) service. Customers will enjoy the following benefits:

 

  • Direct coverage between the West Coast South America and the United States East Coast. (No transshipment will be needed)
  • Wide variety of line-haul connections available via Balboa, Manzanillo and Jacksonville to U.S. West Coast, U.S. East Coast and Europe
  • Very competitive transit times (including Valparaiso to New York in 18 days) especially beneficial for perishable cargoes and an increased focus on vessel on-time performance
  • Six vessels in the service (MOL operates three) resulting in additional dry and refrigerated cargo capacity

 

The new ACW port rotation is:

 

New York (Mon/Tue) – Charleston (Thu/Thu) – Miami (Sat/Sat) – Cartagena (Wed/Wed) – Manzanillo (Fri/Fri) - Balboa, Panama (Sat/Sun) – Buenaventura (Mon/Mon) – Callao (Sat/Sat) – Valparaiso (Wed/Thu) – Callao (Sun/Mon) – Buenaventura (Fri/Fri) – Balboa, Panama (Sun/Sun) – Manzanillo (Mon/Tue) – Jacksonville (Fri/Sat) – New York (Mon/Tue)
