Maersk Line will launch a container service connecting the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and East Africa, starting in early April.
The new service, called the Mawingu Express, replaces the Danish carrier’s Indian Ocean Islands Service covering the Middle East and East Africa trades.
The port rotation will be: Nhava Sheva (Jawaharlal Nehru), Karachi, Salalah, Mombasa, Victoria, and back to Nhava Sheva.

Maersk India officials said the service will deploy four vessels of roughly 2,500 20-foot equivalent units capacity, offering a transit time of 14 days from Nhava Sheva to Mombasa.
The weekly Mawingu Express will start with the sailing of the ER Bremen from Nhava Sheva, India’s largest container port, on April 10.
