Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced the Latin-East-Coast Europe Express (LUX), a new weekly service connecting Europe and the Mediterranean to the East Coast of South America.
The LUX is ONE’s first dedicated service connecting Europe and the Mediterranean to South America’s East Coast.
The service is intended to provide a competitive northbound transit time from South America’s East Coast to the Mediterranean and Europe, providing consumers with a competitive alternative to existing market offerings, particularly for chilled cargo.
Yu Kurimoto, Managing Director of ONE, said: “South America has always been of strategic importance to our global network. The launch of the LUX service demonstrates ONE’s commitment to providing our customers with excellent, reliable, efficient, and comprehensive services.
“We are constantly looking for ways to enhance our products and offerings, and the LUX service represents a significant step forward in meeting the needs of our customers in this important region.”
The inaugural sailing for LUX will commence from Montevideo on 16 September 2023 with the following rotation: Rotterdam – London Gateway – Hamburg – Antwerp – Lisbon – Algeciras – Santos – Paranagua – Montevideo – Buenos Aires – Itapoa – Paranagua – Santos – Rio De Janeiro – Algeciras – Rotterdam
