Japan's Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has decided to split its present NKX service to the Indian sub-continent into two, according to shipping industry sources.

At present, the service connects Singapore with Nhava Sheva (west coast of India) and Karachi (Pakistan). The proposed services, to be known as NCX and KPX, will link separately China and India and Singapore and India and Pakistan.

The port rotation for NCX will be: Shanghai- Da Chan Bay – Hong Kong – Singapore – Nhava Sheva – Port Kelang – Singapore – Shanghai and that for KPX service will be Singapore- Pipavav- Karachi-Colombo-Penang-Port Kelang-Singapore. NCX will be MOL's first direct service linking China's Shanghai and Shenzhen with India's Nhava Sheva, it is pointed out.

In all, seven container ships, each of 2,500-TEU capacity, will be deployed on the two loops — four on NCX and three on KPX. The first vessel for the NCX loop is expected to arrive in Shanghai on May 19 .
