Due to ongoing toe wall construction at Charleston Wando terminal, we have seen waiting times increased beyond the manageable threshold for the OC1 service. These delays are expected to continue for the next 10 – 12 months. To restore stability to the network and offer a reliable product to our customers, we will replace Charleston and call Savannah for the foreseeable future.

In line with the above mentioned, we are also experiencing congestion in Cristobal. Until delays restore to normal levels, Cristobal will be removed from the rotation until further notice.


Current Rotation: Philadelphia > Charleston > Panama Canal > Balboa > Tauranga > Sydney > Melbourne > Port Chalmers > Tauranga > Panama Canal > Manzanillo > Cristobal > Cartagena > Philadelphia

New Rotation: Philadelphia > Savannah > Panama Canal > Balboa > Tauranga > Sydney > Melbourne > Port Chalmers > Tauranga > Panama Canal > Manzanillo > Cartagena > Philadelphia
