Carriers to cooperate in Asia/South Africa/South America trade

Carriers to cooperate in Asia/South Africa/South America trade

Hamburg Sud, Maersk Line, and NYK Line will begin to jointly operate in the trade between Asia, South Africa, and the East Coast of South America, starting in mid-April

   The agreement will see three existing services — one operated by Maersk and two operated by Hamburg Sud and NYK together — replaced by two strings, although the change will not result in any significant capacity change, the carriers said in a joint statement.

   String 1 will include 10 vessels of about 3,500 TEUs, of which Hamburg Sud will provide six and Maersk four. The port rotation for this loop will be Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tanjung Pelepas, Sepetiba, Santos, Buenos Aires, Rio Grande, Paranagua, Santos, Port Elizabeth, Durban, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

   The String 2 will deploy 10 ships of 2,500 TEUs with NYK contributing six, Maersk three and Hamburg Sud one. The rotation will be Nagoya, Yokohama, Pusan, Hong Kong, Laem Chabang, Singapore, Tanjung Pelepas, Durban, Santos, Itajai, Santos, Sepetiba, Singapore, Hong Kong and back to Nagoya.
