November 14, 2011

Hamburg Süd and CCNI on the one hand and China Shipping, Hanjin and Hyundai on the other have reached agreement on optimizing their service offering during the forthcoming slack season between Asia and Mexico/South America West Coast with effect from mid-November 2011. To this end, the partners’ three slings will be reduced to two. Sling 1 of the new service will see the deployment of eleven 5,500 TEU vessels (nominal), of which Hamburg Süd is to provide ten and CCNI one. The port rotation in Sling 1 is as follows: Keelung – Hong Kong – Xiamen – Ningbo – Shanghai – Pusan – Lazaro Cardenas – Manzanillo – Buenaventura – Callao – Iquique – Puerto Angamos – Valparaiso – Keelung
In Sling 2 ten container ships with a capacity between 3,100 and 4,500 TEU (nominal) will be deployed. Of these, CCNI, China Shipping and Hanjin will each deploy three vessels and Hyundai one. The port rotation in Sling 2: Ningbo – Shanghai – Shekou – Hong Kong – Pusan – Manzanillo – Buenaventura – Guayaquil – Puerto Angamos – Valparaiso – San Vicente – Manzanillo – Pusan – Shanghai
The new service concept begins with the following sailings:
Sling 1: “Monte Aconcagua” (ETS Hong Kong, 17 November 2011)
