Hapag-Lloyd expands feeder network in Scandinavia

Hapag-Lloyd has announced that it plans to integrate the Port of Oslo into its Baltic Express Service (BAX). The BAX will then link a total of six ports in Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Russia with the hubs in Hamburg, Germany, and Bremerhaven, Germany, from where it will be connected to Hapag-Lloyd’s global service network.

The first ship is scheduled to depart from Oslo. The new port rotation of the BAX service is as follows: Hamburg – Bremerhaven – Oslo – Muuga/ Tallinn – Saint Petersburg – Kotka – Klaipėda – Gdynia – Hamburg.

In addition, Hapag-Lloyd will offer its customers of the services Sweden Denmark Express (SDX) and Gothenburg Express (GTE) two departures a week respectively, from Gothenburg and Helsingborg in Sweden.

The introduction of these new services is designed to improve Hapag-Lloyd’s Scandinavian network.

The port rotation for the SDX service will then be as follows: Gothenburg – Aarhus – Bremerhaven – Hamburg – Helsingborg – Gothenburg.

The port rotation of the GTE service remains unchanged: Bremerhaven – Hamburg – Copenhagen – Helsingborg – Gothenburg – Bremerhaven.

With this addition Hapag-Lloyd has a total of five own feeder services in the Baltic region/ Scandinavia, which are connected to the global service network via the hubs of Hamburg and Bremerhaven.
