Finland Express (FIX) will improve the Baltic region’s links to Hapag-Lloyd’s worldwide service network in Hamburg and Bremerhaven, Second weekly departure for key ports in Russia and Finland

Hapag-Lloyd will launch its new Finland Express Service (FIX) on April 2 to improve links between the Baltic region. The feeder service will connect Russia, Finland and Sweden with Hamburg and Bremerhaven, the two major North German hubs in Hapag-Lloyd’s worldwide service network. These two ports offer links to a total of 26 direct mainliner services operated by Hapag-Lloyd from/to Asia, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, North and South America, Africa, Southern Europe and Australia.

With the new FIX service, Hapag-Lloyd will offer its clients a second weekly departure from/to key Finnish and Russian ports, complementing its existing Russia Express Service (REX) which was launched last May. Hapag-Lloyd also offers fast, reliable connections to the Baltic region and ensures port coverage with three other feeder services – the Poland Express Service (PEX), Gothenburg Express Service (GTE) and Baltic Feeder Service (UFE/BSF).

The Finland Express Service will call at Bremerhaven, Hamburg, St. Petersburg, Kotka, Rauma and Gaevle (Sweden) before returning to Bremerhaven. Hapag-Lloyd is currently looking into calling at the Russian port of Ust-Luga as well. Two vessels with a capacity of approximately 1,000 TEU each will operate the FIX service. The first ship in the service is scheduled to depart from Hamburg on April 2.
