Hapag-Lloyd to Call East Coast of Africa for the 1st Time

Beginning in early April, German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd is to launch a new weekly service between the Saudi Arabian port of Jeddah and the east coast of Africa.

With the East Africa Service (EAS), the liner shipping company will be calling at the ports of Mombasa, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for the first time.

As informed, these ports will be connected to Hapag-Lloyd’s existing network via the Saudi Arabian port of Jeddah, as the central hub of the region.

The carrier said it will initially deploy four 1,200 TEU vessels in the EAS, which will be operated by Hapag-Lloyd without other shipping companies as partners.

The port rotation will be Jeddah – Mombasa – Dar es Salaam – Jeddah.

Hapag-Lloyd, the world’s fifth-largest container shipping company, has a fleet of 215 containerships with a total transport capacity of 1.6 million TEU.
