Hamburg Sud offers new intra-Caribbean, upgrades UCLA services

CONTAINER shipping lines Hamburg Sud and Alianca have upgraded their South America east coast-Caribbean, Central America and US-Gulf (UCLA) service.

The present two-loop set up operated with 12 vessels ranging from 1,700 to 2,500 TEU will be "upgraded to a new main string with modern tonnage and full port coverage," Hamburg Sud said.

The company also said that seven 3,800 TEU ships will call at the following ports: Veracruz, Altamira, Houston, Cartagena, Suape, Santos, Rio Grande, Navegantes, Paranagua, Santos, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Puerto Cabello, Cartagena, and back to Veracruz.

The first sailing under the new rotation will be made by the Cap San Marco, voyage 67N, which is expected to arrive in Rio Grande on June 7.

To complement this main service and offer transshipment possibilities for other Hamburg Sud services a new dedicated intra-Caribbean service, called the Aztec service, will be introduced by Hamburg Sud, using three 1,700 TEU vessels on a weekly frequency.

The port rotation for the Aztec service is: Altamira, Veracruz, Havana, Manzanillo (PA), Cartagena, Puerto Cabello, La Guaira and back to Altamira.

The first Aztec service sailing will be the Cala Pantera 001, which is due to arrive in Altamira on July 7.

"These changes address the market requirements for direct and reliable services within the region, with fixed-day sailings and competitive transit-times throughout the major ports," the statement added.
