Revamp of ANA Service and Launch of Surabaya - Dili Service - 22 Jun 2015
Revamp of ANA Services
We are pleased to announce the revamp of ANA service. Having received feedbacks from our valued clients over the past 18months, we have listened to their feedback earnestly and have actioned for the service to be further improved. With the revamp of the routing of ANA services, we will achieve regular 14 day frequencies and reduce any irregularities with the scheduling that had occurred earlier due to Dili port delays.
Current and new routing of ANA service is as follow:
|Current:||Shanghai – Qingdao – Hong Kong – Dili – Darwin – Port Moresby – Townsville – Kaohsiung|
|New:||Shanghai – Qingdao – Hong Kong – Surabaya – Darwin – Port Moresby – Townsville – Kaohsiung.|
With the revamp of the service routing, we now aim to provide our clients with fixed window and 14 days frequency that we have assured our clients, since the start of ANA service in 2009.
Kindly note that the service revamp also aims to improve MELL service to Dili. Dili cargo shall be discharged in Surabaya to be connected onto our newly launched Surabaya – Dili Service (please refer to Surabaya-Dili Service announcement as attached) for fast and reliable transit. This will ensure more timely arrival of Dili imports.
Revamped ANA service also allows MELL to provide the fastest transit time for North Asia cargo to Surabaya, Surabaya cargo to Port Moresby, Darwin and Townsville and improved connectivity for cargo originating from South East Asia, India-Subcontinent and Europe.
The new schedule will take effect from MV Glory 003s,
|Shanghai:||12th JULY 2015|
|Qingdao:||14th JULY 2015|
|Hong Kong:||18th JULY 2015|
|Surabaya:||26th JULY 2015|
|Darwin:||31st JULY 2015|
|Port Moresby:||5th AUGUST 2015|
|Townsville:||8th AUGUST 2015|
The below table provides and overview of the transit time achieve by current ANA as compared to the revamped service (to note that below POLs does not represent the full range of POLs which MELL provides).
Launch of Surabaya – Dili service (SDS)
We are also pleased to introduce a dedicated feeder service between Surabaya – Dili. SDS service will be launched on 1st Aug at Surabaya and will run a 14 days frequency between Surabaya and Dili. SDS shall provide reliable and regular on-carriage for all cargo bound to Dili. The new feeder service will call Surabaya port and berth at Dili port directly.
With the launch of SDS, MELL will also provide fast and reliable service for Surabaya to Dili cargo.

We are confident that the revamped ANA and launch of SDS allows MELL to step up our service level further to our valued customers in Dili, Port Moresby, Darwin and Townsville. Looking forward to increased cooperation with all our valued customers.
