Hapag-Lloyd withdraws South America EC – Caribbean service
Hapag-Lloyd has announced the cessation of its South America East Coast – Caribbean Service (SCS), due to the “unprecedented strain” of the global logistics industry.
The German container carrier has published the following last sailings per direction:
- Southbound: MH Hamburg, V. 223S, Estimated Time of Arrival in Houston 17 June
- Northbound: MSC Barcelona, V. 225N, Estimated Time of Arrival in Rio de Janeiro 12 June
The Hamburg-based box line said that in the future, most of the ports that were originally covered by this service will continue to be served by its US Gulf – South America East Coast (GS1) service.
