ANL has announced a new service that will connect the Australian ports of Brisbane and Sydney with Shekou and Shanghai.
The A3 Express Loop (A3X) will run with 4200-TEU capacity vessels operating on a 35-day round trip.
The first sailing will be the Spirit of Hong Kong, and will be operated by ANL. It will depart Shanghai on 31 May.
The A3X service will run in addition to ANL’s A3N (which connects Australia with Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China), A3C (to Australia from central China) and A3S (to Australia from Taiwan, China and Hong Kong) services.
