Container lines Ocean Network Express (ONE) is launching a new service covering Africa, India and the Middle East (AIM).

The new product will broaden ONE's already expansive global coverage by offering direct port calls between West Africa, South Africa and key locations in West Asia.

The new service will offer market leading transit times between the West Asian ports of Jebel Ali, Mundra, Nhava Sheva and Colombo and African ports of Durban, Cape Town, Tema, Tincan and Apapa.

The AIM Service, launched through a joint cooperation with Hapag-Lloyd, will commence from October 2019 with 9 ships of nominal 2,800 TEU. Hapag-Lloyd adds it as Middle East-India-Africa Express (MIAX).

"With MIAX, we are expanding our service offerings for the growing African market and integrating the continent even more tightly into our global network. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers even faster and more flexible direct connections in the future," said Mark Wottke, Senior Director Trade Management Africa.
