Hapag-Lloyd has announced it is adding additional services to ease the build-up of containers in India and also to improve the challenging situation at the port of Colombo which is heavily congested.

Starting at end of January, Hapag-Lloyd is offering a fortnightly sailing from Chittagong to Krishnapatnam connecting Bangladesh onto the South India – Europe Express service (IEX). The company is deploying an extra-loader vessel between India and North Europe improving Hapag-Lloyd´s current service portfolio.

“With this extra loader we are able to improve our service offers for customers in India and Bangladesh but also in North Europe. The huge demand we are currently seeing is pretty unprecedented and we do our utmost to support our customers with extra capacity,” said Lars Sorensen, Hapag Lloyd managing director India.

Bookings will be available via the Quick Quotes platform, with options i.e. to add shipping guarantee, allowing containers to be moved and delivered with highest reliability.

 The rotation will be: Nhava Sheva-Mundra-Jeddah- Tangiers-Rotterdam-Hamburg- London Gateway- Antwerp- Tangiers- Jeddah- Jebal Ali- Karachi- Nhava Sheba- Mundra.
