US-India trade boost as new ONE WIN service calls APM Terminals Mumbai and Port Elizabeth

APM Terminals Mumbai (Gateway Terminals India - GTI) welcomed the maiden call of the new Ocean Network Express (ONE) WIN service on 12 May. The service, which connects India's West Coast with the US East Coast, will call APM Terminals Port Elizabeth in the Port of New York/New Jersey mid-June. This significant development marks a pivotal moment in bolstering trade relations between the two regions and lifting global connectivity at Jawaharlal Nehru Port in Nhava Sheva.

India has been playing an increasingly important role in world trade, with an export volume of approximately $453 billion for merchandise trade and an annual growth rate of 15% in 2022, according to the World Trade Organisation.

Promising partnership

The maiden vessel, M.V. ONE MODERN, signaled the commencement of yet another promising partnership between APM Terminals and Ocean Network Express (ONE). APM Terminals Mumbai performed 2075 moves (3492 TEUs) in 19 hours and the vessel sailed out early morning on 13 May 2024.

Adding to the significance of the occasion, ONE planned to cover the vessel with their trademark magenta containers before her exit from India. GTI played its part and helped load most bays with magenta-colored boxes while the remaining will be covered in Mundra.

Nine-strong fleet

The new WIN service will be operated by a fleet of nine vessels, leaving from Karachi, making a stopover at Hazira before calling at GTI, Nhava Sheva. The vessel will exit India from Mundra for a 28-day voyage to the US East Coast calling at APM Terminals Port Elizabeth, Savannah, Jacksonville, and Charleston. After completing its US East Coast run, the service will embark on its return voyage to the Indian Subcontinent from Norfolk, VA.

This is the first ONE service to call APM Terminals Elizabeth since ONE’s formation of in 2018.

Modernised systems an obvious choice

APM Terminals Elizabeth, the second largest marine terminal in the Port of New York and New Jersey, plays a crucial role in the new WIN service. With its recently modernised systems, infrastructure and strategic location, the terminal is well-equipped to handle large cargo volumes efficiently. 

The main commodities carried by the service include fast-moving consumer goods such as electronics, perishables such as foodstuffs, and retail goods including textile and apparel. Furthermore, chemicals moving between these two countries will benefit from the direct and increased capacity.
