January 14, 2016

From mid-February, Hapag-Lloyd will introduce a new Black Sea Mediterranean Express (BMX) service. The new short sea service offers customers a weekly connection between ports in Egypt, Israel, Turkey and major Black Sea ports with competitive transit times. It will furthermore guarantee the connectivity of the Black Sea ports with Hapag-Lloyd’s comprehensive global liner service network – especially to and from North America, Latin America, Far East, Oceania and North Europe. 
Three ships with a nominal capacity of 1,700 TEU each and a high number of reefers plugs will be deployed in the BMX service. The first voyage will commence from Damietta on February 16. The port rotation is: Damietta • Port Said (East) • Ashdod • Istanbul (Mardas & Marport) • Novorossiysk • Odessa • Constanta • Istanbul • Izmit • Izmir • Damietta.
