Hyundai Merchant Marine has launched its China India Express (CIX) service with the first regular service call in Mumbai.

The 8,562 TEU Hyundai Loyalty, one of six vessels deployed on this service, visited the Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals Private Limited (BMCT) on January 2.

The service connects BMCT, operated by PSA International, to key Far East markets with the following port rotation: BMCT – Mundra – Karachi – Port Kelang – Singapore – Hong Kong – Gwangyang – Busan – Shanghai – Ningbo – Shekou – Singapore – BMCT.

A total of 8,540 TEUs were handled during this first call in 42 hours.

“We are honoured to receive this early vote of confidence from HMM in BMCT’s first year of operations,” PSA India’s Senior Advisor Captain Suresh Amirapu said.

The terminal’s capacity is set to reach 2.4 million TEUs by April 2019 with the arrival of 3 more super post-panamax quay cranes.
