The ports of Savannah and Shanghai are among the busiest on the East Coast North America to Asia trade lane.
Of the seven container services offering transits from Savannah to Shanghai, THE Alliance’s EC2 loop offers the fastest, with sailings from Savannah through the Panama Canal to Shanghai in just 35 days, as illustrated in the chart above, which was built using BlueWater Reporting’s Port to Port Transit Analysis by Carrier application.
THE Alliance operates two services that offer transits from Savannah to Shanghai, while the OCEAN Alliance, the largest of the three major container shipping alliances, offers three.
Additionally, the 2M Alliance operates two services that offer Savannah to Shanghai transits, although one of these services is jointly operated with ZIM.
While the chart does not reveal the passages, transit times are indifferent to the chosen passage of the Panama Canal or Suez Canal.
