Hapag-Lloyd Improves Service between Asia and Mexico

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

Hapag-Lloyd will expand the weekly Asia- Mexico Express Service (AME) to two weekly services with slightly different rotations from mid-June. This will give customers a further improvement in transport capacities with three additional ports called at (Qingdao, Xiamen and Hong Kong) as well as weekly departures from Ensenada in north Mexico (so far
every two weeks).
The new AME I service will call at the following ports: Qingdao - Ningbo - Shanghai
- Busan - Yokohama - Ensenada - Manzanillo (MX) - Lazaro Cardenas - Ensenada
- Yokohama. The first departure is scheduled from Ningbo on June 19th.
The new AME II service will call at the following ports: Xiamen - Hong Kong -
Chiwan - Kaohsiung - Lazaro Cardenas - Manzanillo (MX) - Yokohama. The first departure is planned from Hong Kong on June 14th.
Transit times for customers will shorten significantly in some cases. The transit time between Kaohsiung and Lazaro Cardenas, for example, will be only 15 days
in future instead of the hitherto 23 days.
The two services are offered in cooperation with APL. Hapag-Lloyd will deploy six 4200 TEU ships and APL six 5100 TEU vessels in future. Four Hapag-Lloyd and two APL units each of 4200 TEU capacity have so far operated in the AME service.
