Hapag-Lloyd has made an update to its WSN service which connects the US West Coast with Australia and New Zealand.
As of 12 June, the WSN service will start its weekly calls at the Port of Oakland, US.
The Port of Seattle will be called at twice a week – once for discharge and once for loading. This will follow the port of rotation of: Seattle (US) – Vancouver (Canada) – Seattle (US) – Oakland – Auckland (New Zealand) – Sydney (Australia) – Melbourne (Australia) – Papeete (French Polynesia).
The Papeete call has been added on a fortnightly basis for the WSN/PNW loop, starting with the MV Synergy Keelung 207N.
Earlier this month, Hapag-Lloyd also published its audited annual report for the 2021 financial year, reporting revenues of $26.4 billion.
The group’s EBITDA increased to slightly more than $12.8 billion, while EBIT rose to $11.1 billion.
Furthermore, the group’s net result improved to around $10.8 billion.
These positive results were mainly driven by high freight rates, introduced due to very strong demand for goods exported from Asia.
