Hapag-Lloyd has updated its North Sea Poland Express (NPX) service which connects regions in Europe.
The update came into effect from the start of the new year and now will only include the ports of Hamburg and Gdynia. In Hamburg, the NPX service is set to call at Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) and Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT).
The previous rotations of the service were:
- Westbound: Helsingborg (Sweden) – Gdynia (Poland) – Antwerp (Belgium)
- Eastbound: Antwerp – Rotterdam (Netherlands) – Gdynia
The new rotations of the service are as follows:
- Westbound: Gdynia – Hamburg (Germany)
- Eastbound: Hamburg – Gdynia
“With this new setup, we are introducing a one vessel rotation instead of the original two-vessel deployment,” said the German ocean carrier in a statement. “The ports of Helsingborg, SE, Rotterdam, NL and Antwerp, BE will continue to be served via additional feeders, but will no longer be part of the rotation.”
Hapag-Lloyd has also recently welcomed the Port of Savannah back to its Atlantic Loop 3 service. The port was previously omitted from the service to avoid delays and to maintain schedule integrity. To ensure this it was replaced with the Port of Jacksonville (JAXPORT).
“If you’re shipping between the East Coast of North America and the North of Europe on our AL3 service, we are glad to share with you that we will be resuming our Savannah calls on January 2022,” said Hapag-Lloyd in a statement.
