Hapag-Lloyd and ONE remove three port calls from intra-Europe service
Hapag-Lloyd and Ocean Network Express (ONE), which cooperate on the North Sea Poland Express (NPX) service, will withdraw three port calls from the service.
Effective from January, the two shipping lines will remove the ports of Helsingborg, Rotterdam and Antwerp from NPX service’s rotation, which will now include only the ports of Hamburg in Germany, and Gdynia in Poland.
In Hamburg, NPX will call Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) and Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT), according to Hapag-Lloyd’s statement.
“Regarding the excluded from the NPX service ports, they will continue to be served via additional feeders, but will no longer be part of the rotation,” explained the German carrier.
Additionally, instead of two vessels, the partner liner operators will deploy only one container ship, the 1,700 TEU Rijnborg, on the NPX service.
