Changes to Port Rotation and Transit Times from Europe

Further to newsletters earlier in the year relating to the merged NEMO and MSC services. We would like to reconfirm the revised schedule as per the below table.  When the carriers merged end October, it resulted in a changed loop with overall more port calls and change in port rotation for the NEMO service.  

The below outlines old NEMO service port rotation and transit times. Changes to the old NEMO include the addition of  La Spezia, Gioia Tauro  and Antwerp and a change in port rotation around the Australian coastline. Sydney now before Melbourne and Fremantle no longer the first port of call ,but the last on its way out of Australia.

This will mean that transhipment services into Fremantle offer better transit times, however even with the longer transit time to Melbourne, it’s generally a more reliable and faster service compared with transhipment options  through South East Asia.  Sydney transit times have improved with the changed rotation and Brisbane continues to be serviced via transhipment at Sydney.

The table shows the below load ports in Europe, however it should be noted that the vessels also call at Damietta/Port Louis/Pointe Des Galets on their way to Australia.

This is now the only direct service operating from Europe to Australia, all other services are transhipment.  NEMO is operated by CMA-CGM, ANL and MSC.

Our sales and customer service team will discuss specific transit time and cost comparisons between the Direct and Transhipment options .
