New Service Setup - SAEC and MESA

Dear Customers,

Hamburg Süd is pleased to announce the modification of the SAEC and MESA services covering the trade from South America East Coast to North Europe and the Mediterranean and vice versa as from October 1, 2017.

The weekly services will be operated by eight vessels each. Hamburg Süd operates all eight modern and homogenous vessels in the SAEC service with a capacity of 10,500 TEU. Our partners Maersk and CMA operate the vessels of the MESA service.

Both services will provide the most reliable network with the fastest transit times in the market. The new configuration is tailor-made for connection in Tangier northbound and Algeciras southbound, and therefore offers an extensive coverage of the East Mediterranean and Middle East/Indian subcontinent. The SAEC service will call at the Brazilian port of Pecem in order to attend the fruit season.
