New Asia-ECSA Service Loop Added to Current NHX Service

February 22, 2011

Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK), Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (“K” Line), and Pacific International Lines (Pte) Ltd. (PIL) are pleased to announce the launch of a new biweekly service (NHX-2) from Asia to the east coast of South America (ECSA). This new service will be in addition to the current New Horizon Express (NHX-1) service currently offered by the four lines.

Commencing in March, NHX-2 will enhance our current service to the growing South American market with direct coverage to Vitoria, Brazil, as well as a faster transit time to Rio de Janeiro.
We will further expand this to a fixed-day weekly service should there be strong support from the market.
Meanwhile, the current NHX service will introduce a call to Pusan from the middle of March, allowing NHX partners to offer customers a nonstop express between Korea and the ECSA.
