On 5th November 2013 DP World Southampton marked the start of three new transatlantic services calling at the terminal with the inaugural call of Hapag-Lloyd’s 53,532gt/1997 built Kobe Express.

This is an important business win for the UK’s best performing terminal. Southampton will now receive three additional weekly sailings from the Grand Alliance on the America-Europe trade, The Gulf Atlantic Express (GAX), the Gulf Mexico Express (GMX) services and the Pacific Atlantic Express (PAX, also connecting with Asia and the US West Coast).

This adds to the existing weekly North Atlantic Express service ATX of the Grand Alliance which has been calling at Southampton for many years.
