German carrier Hapag-Lloyd has announced a change in its Europe-Asia Loop 5 service. It will now call Southampton, England, instead of London’s Thamesport.
The change will take effect westbound starting with the Hyundai Global, voyage 021W06, departing Gwangyang, South Korea.
The remaining port rotation and the transit times will remain unchanged.
Hapag-Lloyd is a member of the G6 Alliance, which recently announced that it will maintain the current five-loop product structure for Asia-North Europe service in 2013 and will not reinstate Loop 3.
