German liner company Hapag-Lloyd announced the launching of a direct all water feeder service in Latin America effective May 11, 2015.
The feeder service will include calls at Cartagena, Colombia and Manzanillo, Panama every 10 days to La Guaira and Puerto Cabello, Venezuela.
The rotation of the service is as follows:
Cristobal • Cartagena • Puerto Cabello • La Guaira • Manzanillo, PA • Cristobal
The service is expected to be inaugurated with a planned start date of May 11, 2015 on MV Hansa Kristiansand (voyage 113N), Hapag Lloyd said.
The move comes as Hapag-Lloyd together with CSAV pursues plans 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.
