Hamburg Süd, Maersk Line Second Sling to Asia

Press Release
Thursday, May 26, 2011

After reducing their joint Asia – South Africa/South America East Coast Service in the slack season to one sling, Hamburg Süd and Maersk Line will again be adding a second sling to their service concept with effect from July 2011. With this move, the service partners wish to further improve their service quality and take account of heightened demand in the peak season in this trade. The two slings are designed to be mutually complementary and provide the comprehensive service package in this trade – with a broad array of connections to both company’s networks in Asia, South Africa and South America.

Sling 1 will offer the following port rotation: Busan – Shanghai – Ningbo – Yantian – Hong Kong – Tanjung Pelepas – Singapore – Santos – Itapoa – Buenos Aires – Montevideo – Rio Grande – Itapoa – Paranagua – Santos – Singapore – Hong Kong – Busan

Port rotation in Sling 2 is: Shanghai – Nansha – Hong Kong – Singapore – Tanjung Pelepas – Durban – Suape – Sepetiba – Itajai – Santos – Port Elizabeth – Durban – Hong Kong – Shanghai

In Sling 1 Hamburg Süd and Maersk Line will be providing a total of twelve “Santa” class (Hamburg Süd) and “Sammax” class vessels (Maersk Line): the ships have a capacity of between 7,100 and 7,500 TEU (nominal) and 1,600 to 1,700 reefer plugs. Sling 2 will see the deployment of eleven Hamburg Süd and Maersk Line Panamax ships, each with a capacity of 4,200 TEU (nominal) and 500 reefer container slots.
