Maersk and Hamburg Sud beef up Asia - South America service

Shanghai: Maersk Line and Hamburg Sud are adding a second string to their Asia - east coast South America service for the peak season. The two lines plan to deploy five vessels each of 2,100 teu in capacity on the second string. The service will start in July connecting Chinese and Southeast Asian ports with South America via South Africa. "After the end of the peak season demand, which is expected to last through to November, the lines intend to return to a single string configuration," Maersk said. [11/06/10]
