Hapag-Lloyd has announced two new services, the South-East India – Europe Express Service (IEX) African liner services and the MIAX (Middle East-India-Africa Express) to commence operations in October 2019.

Hapag Lloyd said they are looking to further strengthen and optimize its market-leading position in South-east India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to and from North Europe.
The service will include direct connections between India, the Middle East (Jeddah and Damietta) and Europe (Piraeus, Le Havre, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Hamburg and London
Gateway).

“Our customers have been talking to us about their growing needs in the Indian and Bangladeshi markets, and we have been listening. The introduction of the IEX is a game changer, as it will be the first dedicated direct service from South-east India to Europe, offering connectivity to the global network of Hapag-Lloyd”, says Dr. Maximilian Rothkopf, Chief Operating Officer at Hapag-Lloyd.

“With MIAX, we are expanding our service offerings for the growing African market and integrating the continent even more tightly into our global network. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers even faster and more flexible direct connections in the future,” said Mark Wottke, Senior Director Trade Management Africa.

The weekly IEX service, to be jointly operated with ONE, YML and COSCO, will be made up of nine 6,500 TEU vessels, with Hapag-Lloyd contributing four ships.
The first departures are scheduled for 26 October with the following port rotation: Visakhapatnam, Krishnapatnam, Chennai, Tuticorin, Colombo, Cochin, Damietta, Piraeus, Rotterdam, London Gateway Port, Hamburg, Antwerp, Le Havre, Damietta, Jeddah, Colombo, Visakhapatnam.

MIAX is integrated into the Global Mainline Network with the central ports Jebel Ali (Dubai) and Colombo. Hapag-Lloyd will operate MIAX jointly with Ocean Network Express. A total of 9 vessels with a capacity of 2,800 TEU each, five of which will be provided by Hapag-Lloyd, will be used for the new route. The first departures are scheduled for early October with the following port rotation: Jebel Ali, Mundra, Nhava Sheva, Colombo, La Réunion, Durban, Cape Town, Tema, Lagos (Tincan and Apapa), Cape Town, Durban, Jebel Ali.
