NYK Starts Trans Pacific Car Carrier Service

NYK Starts Trans Pacific Carr carrier Service

Japanese shipping company NYK Line has started its Trans Pacific Express Service (TPX Service), a car transport service linking Mexico, North America, and East Asia.

On January 28, the car carrier Viking Drive departed from Acapulco, Mexico, on the service’s inaugural voyage with finished cars that had been loaded in Mexico and North America. On February 19, the vessel arrived in Yokohama to begin the East Asia off-load.

This service is the first non-stop car transport service from the west coast of Mexico to the west coast of North America, and the west coasts of both Mexico and North America to China.

The new service will have one to two sailings per month, employing up to two car carriers on the following route: Acapulco, Lazaro Cardenas (Mexico), Port Hueneme (U.S.), Yokohama, Nagoya (Japan), Pyeongtaek (South Korea), Xingang, Shanghai (PRC).
