Container shipping company X-Press Feeders has launched its new Straits India X-Press (SIX).
The new service is set to be launched on 12 January 2022 and will run three ships of 1,350 TEU on the route.
The full rotation of this service is as follows: Singapore – Port Klang (Malaysia) – Nhava Sheva (India) – Mundra (India) – Singapore
SIX is set to add on to the company’s Straits – Nhava Sheva and Mundra coverage by providing additional frequencies per week.
X-Press Feeders also recently made an initial payment of $3.6 million to the Sri Lankan government after the fire and the sinking of the X-Press Pearl.
Announced in July 2021, the operator of the container ship made the payment through insurer London P&I Club.
“Discussions are ongoing on the payment of further claims and all legitimate claims will be considered,” the company wrote in statement on 12 July.
