N.C. Ports add new transatlantic service

WILMINGTON, N.C. – North Carolina Ports has announced new partnership with Mediterranean Shipping Co. and Maersk Line with the addition of the TA2/NEUATL2 Europe-U.S. East Coast container service. The enhanced TA2/NEUATL2 service will provide access between Bremerhaven, Felixstowe, Le Harve and Wilmington, N.C.

“An optimized transatlantic trade network allows us to align our services with North Carolina’s business needs,” said Executive Director Paul J. Cozza. “As we continue to invest in our facilities, we’ll see even more activity at our Port of Wilmington, thus furthering our economic contribution to the state.”

The transatlantic network touts market-leading transit times to the U.S. East Coast and will begin calling the Port of Wilmington in April.

The scale of this transatlantic network has led to slot purchase agreements, reached directly with Hamburg Sud and Hyundai. All vessels associated with this service will be operated exclusively by MSC and Maersk Line (which combine to make the 2M Alliance). The 2M partners already deploy multiple strings into the Port of Wilmington.

The TP10/Amberjack all-water Asia-U.S. East Coast container service began in early October of 2016. In addition, Maersk Line runs services via its Intra-Americas regional ocean carrier, SeaLand. The SeaLand Atlantico and revised SAE services provide access to Latin America for ports customers.

N.C. Ports operates ocean ports in Wilmington and Morehead City, as well as and inland terminals in Charlotte and Greensboro.
