Hapag Lloyd has temporarily re-routed a European-US container service through the Jacksonville Port Authority (Jaxport).

The change is part of an effort to “optimize our service portfolio, stabilize schedules and adapt to market needs,” according to Hapag Lloyd.

Hapag Lloyd’s Atlantic Loop 3 (AL3) rotation will begin calling Jaxport’s TraPac Container Terminal with the arrival of the container ship Hudson Express in mid-November. The service call will last for at least eight weeks and bring an estimated 1,000 additional teu a week through Jaxport.

The port rotation will be Antwerp, Belgium; Hamburg, Germany; London; Charleston; Jacksonville; and Norfolk.

“During this time of unprecedented port disruption, Jacksonville’s efficiencies on both the landside and waterside continue to make us stand out in the industry,” said Jaxport CEO Eric Green.

Jacksonville has no container vessels waiting at anchorage and offers shippers two-way river traffic to transit to and from berths.
