The enhancement, which is subject to regulatory approval, is being provided under a vessel-sharing agreement between SeaLand and APL. According to the carrier, the service was designed to create more connections across the SeaLand network, calling the west coast of South America, Central America, the Caribbean and U.S. East Coast. Under the NAE service, three vessels, two operated by SeaLand and one by APL, will offer a weekly frequency and capacity of 1,700 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). The port rotation will be Cartagena, Manzanillo, South Florida, New York, Philadelphia, Savannah and back to South Florida. The service, which is scheduled to launch in late June or early July, will also offer connections between Colombia, Panama (through the hub in Manzanillo) and the U.S. East Coast ports of South Florida, New York, Philadelphia and Savannah, Ga.
