OOCL to Set Up New Asia-Adriatic Service

Hong Kong-based Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) is to launch a new Asia-Adriatic service (AAS), extending its existing Mediterranean network to the Adriatic region. 

The new service provides coverage between Asia and Adriatic ports, including Italy, Slovenia and Croatia, on top of the company’s existing inland network throughout Central Europe.

The AAS will have the following port rotation: Shanghai – Ningbo – Busan – Chiwan – Tanjung Pelepas – Port Kelang – Koper – Trieste – Rijeka – Venice – Koper – Malta – Jeddah – Port Kelang – Tanjung Pelepas – Nansha – Shanghai.

OOCL will deploy a 68,961 dwt boxship, Xin Yan Tian, on the route.

The westbound voyage from ETA Shanghai will start operations on August 25, while the eastbound voyage from ETA Koper would commence operating on September 24.
