OOCL Upgrades its Scandinavian Express Service (SBX)
OOCL is pleased to announce the upgrading of their existing SBX service with the addition of a sixth vessel with a nominal capacity of 1000 TEU’s. She will be deployed directly into our SBX1 network increasing our capacity by 5%. Our SBX2 network will be upgraded from two vessels to three vessels with the phasing in of the OOCL Nevskiy from the SBX1, thereby increasing our weekly capacity by 45%. The overall capacity increase across our entire SBX network will be 20%.
We will add Kotka to the SBX2 rotation in addition to a second call at St. Petersburg, which will be calling at Petrolesport (PLP). We will maintain 3 weekly calls to St. Petersburg First Container Terminal (FCT).
