SeaLead, a global container shipping line, announced the launch of a new service, Far East to India Express (FIX), which will connect ports in China to the east coast of India. The service will be undertaken in partnership with Sinotrans, SITC, and TS Lines, says an official release.
"The first voyage will be on August 23, 2023. Rotation will be Qingdao/Shanghai/Ningbo/Shekou/Chennai/ Visakhapatnam/Port Kelang/Shekou/Qingdao. The FIX will offer one of the fastest transit times available from China to Chennai and Visakhapatnam."
In addition to direct ports, the service will also allow for other SeaLead direct and feeder services to Australia, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia, the release said.
"We are proud to offer the FIX service to our customers based in India as it will provide them with a seamless and efficient way to transport their goods between China and the east coast of India and vice versa as well as allow customers in other countries to access the opportunities that India has to offer," says Shiva Mahadevan, Managing Director for South Asia and Middle East, SeaLead.
The new service announcement comes just weeks after SeaLead opened a new office in Mumbai to serve as a hub for its South Asia operations, the release added.
