SCI Adds Indian Call

Shipping Corp. of India’s joint service to the U.S. East Coast will add a call to the southern Indian Port of Tuticorin beginning October 17.

The India-U.S. direct service, called Indamex, is operated jointly with Contship Container Lines and CMA-CGM on a weekly, fixed-day basis.

The new port rotation is Tuticorin, Nhava Sheva, New York, Norfolk, Charleston, Port Said, Colombo and Tuticorin.

Inclusion of Tuticorin will not affect either the schedule or transit time of the service, the consortium said. The consortium launched the Indamex service in March 2000, upgrading it to a weekly service in June 2001.
