The New World Alliance (TNWA) - Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL), APL, and Hyundai Merchant Marine, Co., Ltd. (HMM) - Hanjin Shipping Co., Ltd and United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) today announced a new Asia-East Mediterranean / Black Sea service, named ‘EBX’ (East-Mediterranean / Black Sea Express).
