Hapag-Lloyd will launch its new Finland Express Service in April, directly connecting German hubs with ports in the Gulf of Finland and the Gulf of Bothnia in the Baltic Sea.
The service will extend port coverage in the Baltic and provide a second weekly sailing to and from Russian and Finnish ports, in addition to the existing Russia Express Service.
The fixed-day weekly FIX service has the following rotation: Bremerhaven and Hamburg in Germany; St. Petersburg, Russia; Kotka and Rauma in Finland; Gävle, Sweden; and back to Bremerhaven.
An additional call at Ust-Luga, Russia, is currently under consideration.
The service will be operated with two vessels. The estimated time of shipping for the Anina’s first sailing will be on April 2 from Hamburg, and the ETS for the Hanse Confidence’s first sailing will be on April 8 from Bremerhaven.
