German carrier Hapag-Lloyd is launching a new feeder service between Piraeus, Greece and Beirut, Lebanon.
The company said that the weekly service will be operated by a 3rd party feeder.
The service will kick off on April 27th with the first sailing of Marshal Islands-flagged containership MV King Byron from Piraeus.
In addition, Hapag-Lloyd is planning to launch a series of new products between Asia and the western and eastern coasts of Latin America from July onwards.
These services will employ over 50 ships in all, with Hapag-Lloyd contributing 20 of them. This includes CSAV’s seven efficient 9,300 TEU newbuildings.
