Hapag-Lloyd updates rotation on AL6 service
Hapag-Lloyd will revise the rotation of its Atlantic Loop 6 (AL6) service connecting the Mediterranean and the United States to improve schedule reliability, with effect from May.
The German ocean carrier said that the service will omit US ports on a bi-weekly pattern, with the following structure:
- First week: the service will cover all the Mediterranean ports within the service: Algeciras (Spain), Livorno (Italy), Genoa (Italy), Fos-sur-Mer (France), Barcelona (Spain), Valencia (Spain).
In the US, the service will cover the ports of Norfolk, Savannah and Miami, while New York will be omitted.
- Second week: all the aforementioned Mediterranean ports will be covered, and in the United States, the service will only cover New York, omitting Norfolk, Savannah and Miami.
The first vessel that will present this change will be CMA CGM Dalila, which will be omitting New York.
