The SVS service transports cargo from major Asian ports to key destinations on the U.S. East coast, via the Suez Canal. The service offers direct connections from Vietnam/South China/Singapore to the U.S. East Coast, including Jacksonville, with Algeciras taken out from both East and West bound services, further enhancing vessel transit times and on-time performance.

The SVS is the only Asia to U.S. East Coast service with Norfolk as the first call. The service also calls at Savannah and Charleston. 

The SVS will continue to serve U.S. to Asia export customers in the southeast U.S. with direct Singapore, Vietnam and China calls. The first export call of Singapore allows for easy transshipment to other MOL services, including direct connections to all key ports in Asia.
