Hapag-Lloyd recently held a naming ceremony for the “Cartagena Express” at the Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries shipyard in Samho, South Korea.

“With the ‘Cartagena Express’, yet another state-of-the-art ship of our 10,500 TEU fleet is setting sail. In terms of size, design and reefer capacity, it is ideally suited for the traffic between Europe and South America West Coast,” said Anthony J. Firmin, Chief Operating Officer of Hapag-Lloyd. “As one of the market leaders in the South America trades, Hapag-Lloyd will now have the most competitive ships for the area and can offer its customers premium service.”hapag
The “Cartagena Express” is the third ship of the Post-Panmax series to be delivered to Hapag-Lloyd, after the “Valparaíso Express,” which gave its name to the new class, and the “Callao Express.” This last vessel, delivered in late 2016, is scheduled to hold its naming ceremony in April in the Peruvian port of Callao. All three newbuildings will be deployed in the SW service, which offers weekly connections between North Europe, the Caribbean and West Coast South America.

In the SW service, the “Cartagena Express” will call at the following ports: Rotterdam, London, Hamburg, Antwerp, Le Havre, Caucedo, Cartagena, Manzanillo (Panama), Buenaventura, Callao, Puerto Angamos, Valparaíso, Callao, Buenaventura, Manzanillo (Panama), Cartagena, Caucedo and Rotterdam again.
