Hapag-Lloyd is offering two new feeder services to Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago, effective this month.
The fortnightly Calypso service was scheduled to start with the 1,102-TEU Stadt Emden, voyage 1411, with an expected departure from Manzanillo, Panama, on May 4. The port rotation will be as follows: Manzanillo; Guanta, Venezeula; Point Lisas, Trinidad; and Manzanillo.
The weekly Venezuela Butterfly service will begin with the 1,700-TEU Maersk Wakayama, voyage 1411, with an expected departure from Manzanillo, Panama, on May 13. The port rotation will be the following: Manzanillo; La Guaira and Puerto Cabello, Venezuela; and Manzanillo.
Hapag-Lloyd also recently reintroduced two Asia-U.S. East Coast services.
In April, CMA CGM launched a feeder shuttle connecting its Caribbean hub in Kingston, Jamaica, to Port au Prince, Haiti, according to Alphaliner. The service strengthens coverage of the container line’s Haiti market, which it already serves through its Cuba feeder service. The new dedicated Kingston-Port au Prince-Kingston shuttle will provide weekly sailings using the 353-TEU Red Spirit.
