The service will deploy three 1000 teu capacity vessels (M/V Magnos, M/V Manarias and M/V Maersk Arun) with the following rotation:
Trieste-Ravenna-Pireus-Limassol-Ashdod-Port Said-Alexadria-Limassol-Koper-Trieste.

With effect from middle July, Cosco's AFS service will tranship all the Adriatic carco in Pireus (instead of Gioia tauro). This move allows the Line to reduce the former transit time to/from Trieste, improving the connections with the mother vessels to/from far east and other origins/destinations. The new rotation becomes Trieste- Koper-Venezia-Ancona-Gioia Tauro-Pireus-Rijeka-Trieste.
