Hapag-Lloyd starts new Africa service from India via Middle East to Maputo

Hapag-Lloyd Orders 150,000 TEUs of Standard and Reefer containers

Hapag-Lloyd will launch its new regular service Maputo Express (MAX) beginning of June 2022, expanding its Africa network with this bi-weekly cargo connection. The direct service will operate between Jebel Ali (AE), Mundra (IN) and Maputo (MZ). With this lean three-port rotation, Hapag-Lloyd has created a new service with fast transit times from the Westcoast of India to the Eastcoast of Africa. The stopover in the port of Jebel Ali, a Middle East hub for global cargo traffic, provides customers with further connections to the worldwide network. In addition, Hapag-Lloyd offers with this service an in-bond transit between Maputo and Komatipoort (ZA), creating a unique transportation gateway towards the North of South Africa.

“This expansion shows the confidence Hapag-Lloyd has in Africa’s potential. We connect a new destination with our global network, and we offer a competitive alternative for Johannesburg imports and Southern Africa exports through this new corridor. Plus, we always aim to simplify our network, especially with the current market challenges. We make planning easier and speed up transportation time by calling at only a few strategic ports,” explains Jan Willem De Braal, Senior Director of Trade, Africa.
