Hamburg Süd Extends WAMS Service to Europe

Friday, January 07, 2011

As of February 2011 and subject to obtaining regulatory approval, Hamburg Süd will extend the WAMS service which up to now connected US West Coast, West Coast Mexico and West Cost Central America with the hub in Cartagena. The extended service which henceforth includes Tangier and ports in North Europe will deploy ten vessels of 1,700 TEU nominal capacity of which Hamburg Süd will provide eight and the remaining two will be provided by CCNI.
The complete port rotation is as follows: Long Beach – Oakland – Seattle – Vancouver – Oakland – Long Beach – Manzanillo (Mexico) – Lazaro Cardenas – Puerto Quetzal – Cartagena – Tangier – Rotterdam – Tilbury – Hamburg – Le Havre – Cartagena – Puerto Quetzal – Lazaro Cardenas – Long Beach.
The first sailing under the new rotation will be with the “Cap Palmerston” (v902) from Vancouver on 7 February 2011.
Apart of providing a fast all water service with comprehensive port coverage both on US West Coast and in North Europe, the service connects to the Hamburg Süd network in Cartagena and Tangier. This allows for connecting to the Caribbean basin, East Coast South America, West Coast South America via Cartagena and to the EastMed, Middle East and Indian Subcontinent via Tangier.
