Hamburg Sud to Change Port Rotations

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

In response to unfavorable trading conditions, Hamburg Süd will rationalize its services between North Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. From the first week of August onwards, the existing two-sling concept is to be reconfigured with the aim of ensuring the same comprehensive port coverage while achieving the desired rationalization effects.

While the Northern Route Service (NEMN) to Turkey is to be withdrawn, the Southern Route Levante Service (NESM) will be adjusted to include ports from the Northern Route Service. The new, weekly NESM service will deploy 2,500 to 2,700 TEU vessels on the following rotation:

Felixstowe – Antwerp – Hamburg – Tangiers – Alexandria – Limassol – Beirut –Latakia – Mersin – Izmir – Alexandria – Salerno – Felixstowe.

The service will also feature connections to Tunisia, Algeria and Western Med ports from Tangiers.

Additionally, in cooperation with SEAGO LINE, Hamburg Süd will launch two other weekly strings: The Turkey Sling (Felixstowe – Bremerhaven – Antwerp – Piraeus – Istanbul Ambarli – Izmit Korfezi – Gemlik – Izmir – Valencia – Felixstowe) and The Israel Sling (Felixstowe – Rotterdam – Bremerhaven – Haifa – Ashdod – Felixstowe).
