On 31 May the first deepsea COSCO vessel, the ms COSCO Denmark, called at CSP Zeebrugge Terminal. The ship is being deployed for the NEU3 service of the Ocean Alliance (CMA CGM/ Cosco Shipping Lines/Evergreen/OOCL) connecting the Far East with Northern Europe.
It is about a weekly Far East service calling both at Antwerp and Zeebrugge with very short transittimes for import loads from the Far East to Antwerp and for export loads to Asia in Zeebrugge. From Zeebrugge the east bound loop goes to Piraeus, Tanjung Pelepas, Singapore, Hongkong and Ningbo.
The NEU3 is a weekly service between the Far East and Northern Europe, for which Cosco Shipping and Evergreen are delivering the vessels.
