ONE boosts Africa-India-Middle East service frequency

Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that it will be increasing the sailing frequency of its Africa, India and Middle East (AIM) service from fortnightly to weekly.

The move will come into force starting from May 2023, as part of ONE’s commitment to improving services in Africa.

The increased frequency will begin from the Westbound sailing arriving at Jebel Ali on 6 May, and the Eastbound sailing from Tema on 9 June.

The AIM service rotation will remain unchanged, with the following route:

Jebel Ali – Mundra – Nhava Sheva – Colombo – Durban – Tema – Tincan – Apapa – Durban – Jebel Ali, with a weekly frequency.

According to ONE, this upgrade to a weekly sailing frequency will provide greater flexibility and convenience to cater to the dynamic needs of its customers.

The decision is expected to benefit businesses that rely on the AIM service, providing them with a more frequent and reliable transportation option.

Earlier this week, ONE announced plans to install two wind assist units on one of its container feeder ships before the end of 2023.

The initiative is part of ONE’s ‘Sapphire + Project’, which aims to optimise operational costs while contributing to the company’s Green Strategy.
