ONE launches new service to call at Savannah

ONE launches new West India service to call Savannah

Ocean Network Express (ONE) will launch a new containership service between Savannah and West India in May 2024.

The new offering will give the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) 10 services via the Suez Canal, with nine calling on the Indian subcontinent.

The new ONE announcement will give the Port of Savannah a total of 37 ocean carrier services to global destinations – the most of any port from the mid-Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico.

ONE’s new West India North America (WIN) service will offer a weekly route linking Hazira, Nhava Sheva, and Mundra to Savannah.

The service will also call at Bin Qasim in Pakistan, as well as Damietta, Algeciras, and Jeddah, which offers further connection to Mediterranean destinations in combination with other services

The new service will feature a fleet of nine vessels, all of which are operated by ONE.

“ONE’s West India North America service recognizes a growing shift in global sourcing, with more manufacturers adding operations on the subcontinent,” said Griff Lynch, GPA President and CEO.

“With the world’s largest population, India also represents a tremendous market opportunity for US exporters.

“The Port of Savannah is strategically positioned to take advantage of this trend, providing more connections to India for supply chain flexibility.”

“At ONE, we strive to embrace and support our customers’ growth patterns. The rapid move of so many toward India is ripe for collaboration,” said Zach Connors, Senior Director and Head of Sales of ONE North America.

“Our new WIN service is a flexible and dynamic product, designed to catalyse development of the India-North America market and beyond.

“Enhanced access to additional growing economies along this new route, by direct call and transshipment, will provide even further value to ONE’s partners in their pursuit of supplier/buyer diversification.” 

In May last year, GPA received federal environmental approval to develop an inland terminal near Gainesville.
