PIL to enhance service covering Africa, Middle East and India

Pacific International Lines (PIL) will enhance its Africa-Middle East-India (AMI) trade from March, a service to be jointly operated with CMA CGM under a new vessel sharing agreement.

The enhanced AMI service will start from Jebel Ali on 4 March, deploying a fleet of eleven 3,500 TEU container vessels.

“The enhanced AMI service is designed as a market-leading product with wider port coverage, increased frequency and improved transit time for our customers. AMI will provide new direct routing from Middle East and India to Pointe des Galets, Walvis Bay, Luanda, Pointe Noire and Tincan,” PIL said in a statement.

The weekly service will have a port rotation in 77 days.
