OOCL Bolsters Intra-Europe Service Network
Hong Kong-based container carrier Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) has added a new service to its Intra-Europe Network, the North Europe – Turkey service (NET).
The new service, which started operating from Felixstowe on April 8, features four vessels in the following port rotation: Felixstowe (UK) – Hamburg (Germany) – Antwerp (Belgium) – Piraeus (Greece) – Istanbul – Izmit – Izmir (Turkey) – Salerno (Italy) – Felixstowe.
OOCL said that the NET is an additional service for its Intra-Europe Network and will provide “a fixed day, weekly direct service from North Europe to Turkey.”
“As one of the vessel operators, we are committed to meeting the needs of customers in this trade. The new NET product will cover all key markets and provide competitive transit times between North Europe and Istanbul, Izmit and Izmir,” OOCL informed.
