2M Alliance Brings Northern European Service to Port Everglades

[ August 18, 2017   //   ]

Port Everglades is gaining a Northern European ocean-shipping route as the 2M Alliance begins service with Wednesday calls starting on August 16. The 2M Alliance is a vessel sharing agreement between Maersk and MSC.

The 2M Alliance “TA1/NEUATL1” new service rotation will be Antwerp, Rotterdam, Bremerhaven, Norfolk, Port Everglades, and Houston, Norfolk,  then back to Antwerp. The services will be exclusively aboard US-flagged Maersk vessels.

“This Northern European service further diversifies the fleet and services that call at Port Everglades, and generates additional opportunities for international trade to and from South Florida,” said Jim Pyburn, Director of Business Development for Port Everglades.

At the crossroads of north-south and east-west trade, Broward County’s Port Everglades is Florida’s leading container port, handling more than one million TEUs (20-foot equivalent units, the industry standard measurement for container volumes) and serving as a gateway to Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
