Maersk, Hamburg Sud Announce Far East-East Coast South America Service Upgrade

 

To further improve the service quality and to cater for the market growth Maersk Line together with service partner Hamburg Süd announce the following changes to our service network.

We are currently phasing in the SAMMAX and Santa class vessels in the current ASAS service. These vessels are custom built for this trade with a nominal capacity of 7500 teu and 1700 plugs.

In conjunction with this upgrade we will open a 2nd service as from July.

String 1 operated with 12 SAMMAX/Santa vessels:

Busan-Shanghai-Ningbo-Yantian-Hong Kong-Tanjung Pelepas-Singapore-Santos-Itapoa-Buenos Aires-Montevideo-Rio Grande-Itapoa-Paranagua-Santos-Singapore-Hong Kong-Busan

String 2 operated with 11 PANAMAX vessels:

Shanghai-Nansha-Hong Kong-Singapore-Tanjung Pelepas-Durban-Suape- Sepetiba-Itajai-Santos-Port Elizabeth-Durban-Hong Kong-Shanghai

This will make up the most comprehensive coverage in the trade and is further strengthened by our networks in Asia and Latin America.
