From December 2, 2009, the GA will jointly operate the New York Express (NYX) with TNWA; TNWA will provide six ships while GA will provide three. APL, HMM and MOL will each withdraw one ship from the service.
In addition to a recently added Yokohama call, the NYX port coverage will be enhanced with an additional call at Shekou. The revised port rotation is Shanghai, Ningbo, Shekou, Yantian, Hong Kong, Kaohsiung, Panama Canal, Manzanillo, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Jacksonville, Miami, Manzanillo, Panama Canal, Balboa, Yokohama and Pusan.
The NYX service will continue to be an essential part of the TNWA’s Asia–US East Coast service offerings via the Panama Canal as well as the APX (Atlantic Pacific Express).
