The carrier has launched the AE19 dry and reefer container service, linking the ports of Busan and Gdańsk via Vostochny and St. Petersburg.

The first shipment arrived in Gdańsk on 7 August, carrying cargo loaded in Asia less than two weeks earlier. The containers were sea-shipped from Busan to Global Ports' Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company where they were loaded onto a train, operated by Modul who also took care of custom formalities, destined for Petrolesport, Global Ports' container terminal in the Port of St. Petersburg. There the load was once again put onto a ship of Sealand, Maersk's short sea and feeder arm, which set sail for the Deepwater Container Terminal Gdańsk.

The service's total sea and rail transit time from Busan to Gdańsk is 18 days, while in the opposite direction - 22.
