Subject: Enhanced United States to South Africa (AX1 + SRX Service)



We are pleased to announce the enhancement of the Europe-South Africa (SRX) service, which will provide benefits for both dry and refrigerated exports from the United States East Coast to South Africa.




We have added a second Rotterdam call on the SRX resulting in a faster connection from the United States East Coast to South Africa. The enhanced SRX corresponds to the United States-Europe (AX1) sailing of Houston Express 078E, which calls at Charleston on September 18 and Savannah on September 19.




We will be able to:

  • Reduce the estimated transit time from the United Sates East Coast to South Africa by seven days
  • Reduce the estimated layover in Rotterdam to approximately four day




Please click attached SRX and AX1 service profiles for a full port rotation, transit time, and service maps.
