The monthly service will connect the European ports of Bremerhaven, Antwerp, Southampton, Le Havre, and Santander with Baltimore and Jacksonville in the USA, Lazaro Cardenas in Mexico, and destinations in both New Zealand and Australia via the Pacific Ocean.

The heavy lift and specialist cargo berth Blount Island Marine Terminal at the Port of Jacksonville (Jaxport) will serve as the last US East Coast port of call in the rotation.

With roll trailers ranging from 20 to 80 ft (6.1 m to 24.4 m) and offering a carrying capacity up to 160 metric tonnes, the shipping line can cater for commodities such as trains, windmill parts and breakbulk cargo.
