Improved West Africa Coverage

24 Sep 2010

Hapag-Lloyd will in future offer two complementing fortnightly services between North Europe and West Africa.

Hapag-Lloyd has always focused on meeting its customers’ requirements. As one of
the world’s largest container carriers, we ensure that our ships and employees are always where customers expect us, and our top service, to be.

For this reason we will in future offer two complementing fortnightly services between North Europe and West Africa.

 

The West Africa Express (WAX) will continue to offer direct connections between:

Amsterdam - Hamburg - Antwerp - Dakar - Lagos-Tincan -
Tema - Abidjan - San Pedro - Amsterdam

 

whilst the new West Africa Express 2 (WX2) will operate on following rotation:

Thamesport - Antwerp - Dakar - Tema - Lagos-Tincan -
Abidjan - Vigo - Thamesport

Whilst the Vigo calls are subject to inducement, the WX2 will offer seasonal calls to the Ghanaian port of Takoradi.

 

The first effective sailings for the new service concept will be

WAX  Portofino   ets Antwerp 12.10.2010
WX2  MOL Valparaiso ets Antwerp 17.10.2010

This step emphasizes Hapag-Lloyd’s commitment to the African continent and especially to the West African trade and complements our sub-Saharan Africa network.
